Update on the Dark and Stormy

According to the Mr. Boston's Official Bartender's Guide 75th Anniversary Edition I made the Dark and Stormy drink incorrectly.

The recipe in the book calls for the Dark 'N Stormy to be made as so:

Ginger Beer
2oz Gosling's dark Rum

Pour ginger beer into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass. FLOAT run on top.
See that's where I messed up. I did not float the run on the Ginger beer. So here is an amended cocktail based on the proper method of making the drink.

Here's what it looked like:

OK? OK!!!!

There you go. Enjoy.

Happy Drinking,
