The Dark and Stormy Archer Hotel Austin

The Inspiration

Raise a glass to autumn: To cooling weather, warming cocktails and gathering friends.

Archer’s cloudy yet refreshing Dark and Stormy cocktail incorporates spicy-sweet-warm ginger — an ancient, medicinal herb with a multitude of health benefits.

The Dark and Stormy cocktail


  • 2 ounces black strap rum
  • 3.5 ounces ginger beer
  • .5 ounce lime juice
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters


  1. Combine lime juice, ginger beer and bitters in a tall glass.

  2. Top to full with crushed ice, then slowly pour rum over ice.

  3. Garnish with a lime wheel.
