Bartender Says: "This variation on the classic Dark 'n Stormy takes a house-made ginger beer and floats dark stout beer on top. The cocktail is both flavorful and refreshing, without being too strong and makes for a great alternative to a traditional liquor cocktail or a draft beer. The Southern Tier 2X stout we use has a deep flavor of cocoa, espresso and burnt raisin. It absorbs the spiciness of the ginger, and gives the drink a rich malty weight that lends a hint of bitterness on the finish to keep it refreshing." —Gabe Richter, Beverage Director

Recipe:

Southern Tier 2X Milk Stout
1oz ginger syrup
3/4 oz fresh lime juice

Shake the ingredients with ice to chill/dilute and create the ginger beer base. Strain into a pint glass full of ice. Float stout on top of ginger, and garnish with a lime wedge. Stir the layers together with a straw to combine before drinking. Squeeze extra lime juice in, if desired.
