The Bagan Storm

Everybody likes a dark and stormy right? Well here's our version that Lucy created for our May event. It's strong, it's spicy and it goes down a treat.


50 mls of dark rum (we use Goslings)

25 mls fresh lime juice

100g fresh root ginger to get 50mls of ginger juice

100g caster sugar

Soda water to taste

2 dashes of Angostura bitters

Wedge of lime and ice to serve

Serves 1


To make the ginger syrup put the ginger through a juicer. You should get roughly 50mls of ginger juice per 100g of fresh ginger. Mix 50mls of ginger juice with the caster sugar until it's well dissolved.

Take 30 mls of the ginger syrup and place in a tall glass. Add the rum and mix well. Add ice. Top with soda water to taste and mix well again.

Finish with two dashes of Angostura bitters and a wedge of lime.

Enjoy in good company with good vibes.
