If you drink a Dark 'n Stormy and think, "I'd like to turn this up a notch," this is the cocktail for you, courtesy of The Wayland in NYC. Fresh ginger juice adds heat, rum adds richness, and lime juice keeps it bright.

Note: This drink is easily multiplied. If you want to make these in bulk, use a juicer to squeeze fresh ginger juice and get the best yield. If you're only making one serving, a muddler works fine and saves you some cleaning up. To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
