Dark & Stormy Float

A Dark & Stormy is the perfect summer cocktail. With an added few scoops of Ginger and Lime Ice Cream, summer just got cooler.

2–3 scoops Ginger and Lime Ice Cream (see below)
50 ml/13⁄4 oz. dark rum
275 ml/1 cup and 1 tablespoon fiery and aromatic ginger beer, such as Fentimans
Ginger and Lime Ice Cream
1 pint Vanilla Ice Cream made without the vanilla pod/bean
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 balls stem ginger in syrup, finely chopped, plus extra to decorate
4 tablespoons syrup from the jar of stem ginger
the grated zest and freshly squeezed juice of 4 limes, plus extra to decorate
1 milkshake glass

Makes 400 ml/14 oz. and serves 1

Dark and stormy float

Begin by making the Ginger and Lime Ice Cream or use a good- quality store-bought ice cream. For homemade ice cream, make Vanilla Ice Cream, omitting the vanilla pod/bean and whisking the ground ginger into the cream in the saucepan instead. Add the chopped stem ginger, ginger syrup and the zest and juice of the limes to the custard before chilling.

Place the glasses in the freezer to chill for a few minutes.

For the shake, place a scoop of ice cream at the bottom of the glass before adding the rum and half of the ginger beer. Once the foam stops rising, add another scoop of ice cream before adding the remaining ginger beer. Top with an extra scoop of ice cream if you want to, and decorate with chopped stem ginger and lime zest.
