Classic Cocktails: The Dark ‘N’ Stormy

I actually first read about it. Long after I started making them in a book by a guy named Charles Baker, who wrote a really really great kind of cocktail book and travelogue called the gentleman’s companion. When I learned about it, it was a drink that can hardly be called a cocktail. It’s more like a highball to me. It’s got ginger beer and it’s got dark rum, there’s a little addition to lime juice, which to me also kind of reflects that scurvy preventing sailor thing, but it is the national drink of Bermuda and it is also a registered trademark from the the Gosselin’s corporation.

So I’ve heard that they will go and kind of litigate against people who try to change the menu or change the recipe. But that’s never actually happened to me. It is a very, very dark rum, so I have always used Gosling’s just because that’s how I learn what the drink was, but also when you kind of get the swirling affective or I’m going down to the drink. That to me is kind of the dark and the storm in the darkest tone.


I highly recommend any drink with Spunks! Awesome pumpkin seeds with a kick!

So when you come to Korean BBQ, You’Re, obviously going to be hit by the smell of meat and smoke.

So I like to wear a Ratty t-shirt and then at this point I’m going to put my hair up. This is beef short rib. It’S marinated in Soy sauce and other secret ingredients, My favorite Thing about Korean BBQ is that it cooks so quickly, so the meat is super juicy Take one of These red leaf lettuce, You can use the whole leaf. I like to cut It in half You want to take one of the meat. Take a little scoop of this soybean sauce, which Has a lot of awesome, umami, flavor and maybe a little dip of This anchovy sauce too, whatever sauces they give you, you can try all of them And then You want to wrap it like a meat, taco and then stuff it in your mouth Yeah.

The grill is hottest in the middle So I’m going to want to move them over to the side or move them on top of the Vegetables, so they don’t cook as much. Each serving of meat is technically for One person When you come with a group you want to Order about a portion to three portions, less so say: if you come with six people, you can order three to five portions. If You come with four people, maybe two or three just depends on how Much meat you can eat So this is unmarinated pork belly.

So That means you can sort of sauce it up more. Here we have salt and pepper with sesame oil And I’m going to put a little bit of this kimchi on Kimchi and pork goes Really well together for me: Okay, I’m going to go first and as soon as I Put it in my mouth, then you put in your mouth Yeah.

When it has good marbling on the meat I like to do just a little bit of salt And it’s really fatty, so I don’t put the sesame oil on And then a little bit of bean Paste little bit of scallions to cut through it. This is a cool glass. It shows you how much like with the Alcohol percentages depending how much you drink. Okay, it’s going to get messy, Ready, Ready, Jess, Okay, ready 1, 2.
