Dark and Stormy – A Toast to Summer Plans!

We know its January.  It’s probably cold outside wherever you are, and a crisp, refreshing drink made with Dark Rum isn’t exactly seasonal right now.  It’s ok if you’re sipping on something whisky-based in front of the fire as you read along; that’s probably more appropriate than this recipe.
