Default Gingerbeer+rum dark n stormy

Hey guys

Got my first batch of ginger beer fermenting along nicely

I was wondering what peoples thoughts on adding a shot of dark rum when bottling?

Has anyone tried this?

Why ruin it?

You could, but what is someone wants a bottle without the rum?

I dig dark and stormy. IMO,wouldn't add the rum at bottling just mix one when you want it.

It's better with a shot of strong apple jack or apple brandy, but I agree, premixing drinks and bottling is a poor use of time and only limits your options. The novelty of a bottled cocktail wears off pretty fast.

How did this turn out? I am making a strong ginger mead to make dark and stormys. If the bottles aged, it would be interesting to see if the flavors develop like the brandy addition in a port wine

I love using a bottle of my ginger beer, mixing it with ginger infused vodka, and adding fresh lime juice. Moscow mule maybe? I dunno, but it gives me a chance to use copper mugs and feel fancy while at the same time making SWSMBO happy.
