If you’re after the taste of a Dark ‘N’ Stormy but with a bit of a twist, then a Kumquat-Ginger Smash is the drink you should be making tonight. With dark Rum, Kumquats, Kumquat-Ginger Syrup and Soda Water, this is a citrus and spice twist on the original.
Place the syrup (including a few slices of kumquat) in the bottom of a rocks glass. Using a muddler or the back of a spoon, smash the kumquat until lightly pulped. Add the rum and ice. Stir gently. Top with Soda Water
