Dark and Stormy

I found a promising drink recipe in the newspaper a while back, something called a Dark and Stormy that combined ginger beer and dark rum, and we tried it tonight. It is amazing that you can take two strong flavors like extra-strength ginger beer and dark rum and mix them together to get something that tastes like ginger ale, but that's what happened. When we added the lime and lots of extra ginger, it tasted like a weak rum punch - not bad, but not worth the effort. My theory is that Rachel Ray doesn't like either main ingredient and is delighted to have an inoffensive way to serve them. Regardless, I won't be rushing out to purchase her cookbooks.

Ice cubes
1/2 lime
3 oz dark rum
Ginger beer
Fresh ginger sticks

Fill a pint glass three-quarters full of ice, squeeze in all the juice from the lime half, then drop the rind in the glass. Add the rum and fill with the ginger beer. Garnish with ginger sticks.
