Light n' Breezy

Light n' Breezy

I'm sure there's a name for this cocktail, but I like the name I came up with and I don't feel much like Googling the name of the drink. Long story short, I wanted to make a dark and stormy, but for some reason I couldn't find any ginger beer, so I went with ginger ale instead. It has less of bite, but the result was still blogworthy.

Rum cocktail

Pairs well with fish tacos! Especially these fish tacos!
