Prince Harry Cocktail Recipe


This delicious and intense cocktail—a distant cousin of the Dark and Stormy—is tangy and much less sweet than you'd expect, with a brooding background of ginger root lurking just behind the richness of rum. You can thin it out more with ginger beer if you like, but we enjoy this drink nearly straight up, with just a little fizz to lighten.

Fresh lime juice is essential here; don't buy the bottled stuff. We used Coruba rum, but Brugal and Goslings would work as well.

Recipe from Michael Neff of Ward III in NYC.
