I used to think that my type of guy was tall, dark, and handsome. Dark haired, at least! Funnily enough, I mostly dated blonde/lighter haired guys, and now I’m with J who is my height, fair, and handsome. At least one criteria didn’t change! ;)
This cocktail is definitely dark and handsome. It’s basically a Dark n’ Stormy cocktail – but the addition of Angostura bitters really take it darker and give a more robust flavour.
Also – check out the LIGHT in these photos! Magically there was a sunny break in our week-long rainstorm and as soon as I got home from work I ran outside to snap some photos of this cocktail and literally 5 minutes later, the sun slipped behind a cloud and then set. Timing! It’s everything.
