Dark and Stormy's creamier cousin from Beloved in Greenpoint, Brooklyn is more complex than Gosling's tempest, but it's every bit as easy to drink. Sweetened ginger juice brings a funky spice and milky mouthfeel and bittersweet Cynar rounds it all out.

Note:You can adapt this recipe using a spicy ginger beer. Hidalgo recommends Fever Tree. To make ginger juice, combine 1 cup ginger juice (juiced in a blender and strained) with 5 ounces sugar. Stir until dissolved. To make with ginger beer in lieu of ginger juice, replace club soda with ginger beer.
