It was a Dark and Stormy night #SundayFunday

It was a Dark n' Stormy night here on the farm.  All the family had taken their little goblins home after the last pool outing of the year, and Grammy and Grampy were ready to relax. 

Dark and stormy cocktail

When Grampy asked what he could get for me, I asked for this cousin of a Moscow Mule made with Dark Rum instead of Vodka.

I asked for this particular cocktail because Sue of Palatable Pastime invited us to join her in sharing a drink recipe allowing us to "name our own poison".  I decided to go with a cocktail because....well, cocktails......

Any drink recipe was fair game, though, so make sure you take a look at what the others are sharing if you prefer a mocktail, punch or other non-alcoholic treat.

These are fun Halloween drinks.  You may also enjoy my recipes for other Spooky drinks like this Blood Orange Prosecco Cocktail, I Vant your Blood Martini, Sweet Poison, and Witches Brew.

If you are a fan of Moscow Mules you will love this Dark n' Stormy cocktail, perfect to enjoy after passing out treats to all the little beggars on All Hallow's Eve.  Cheers!!
