The never ending heat of the summer seems to have finally set in. Moreover it seems like we aren’t going to cool down naturally for quite some time. Therefore it might be time to take matters into your own hands. It’s that time of year when cocktails seem to be more refreshing when they are ice cold. Or even better, when they are frozen. Alcoholic popsicles and freezies have become popular in recent years. But sometimes a frozen margarita just doesn’t cut it. And there has got to be something better than simply spiking your 711 slurpee. We have your solution right here: enter the Dark & Stormy Slushy.

This latest frozen cocktail was a collaborative effort from the bartender at Home of The Brave in Toronto and Baron Samedi Rum. The Dark & Stormy Slushy is one of the most delicious Dark & Stormy cocktails we have tasted in recent years. Moreover the slushy aspect makes it the perfect summer cocktail.

Recipe

  • 1 part Baron Samedi Spiced Rum
  • 2 parts Jamaican Ginger beer
  • 1 part Lime
  • 1 part Simple Syrup
  • 1 part Water
  • Use a slushy machine for best results. If using a blender, omit most of the water and add ice cubes instead.

Combine all ingredients and blend. Top with fresh lime.

Baron Samedi Spiced Rum is now available across Canada and retails for $29.99
