Rum & Ginger

rum & ginger cocktail


BlackTail, the Lower Manhattan retro Cuban bar from the team behind The Dead Rabbit, is known to modernize classics like the Rum & Coke. For its contemporary riff on the Dark ’N’ Stormy, bartender Nate Dobson added passion fruit, bitters and a blend of funky Jamaican spirits to the usual ginger and rum base.
