Vernors Ginger Ale was a staple when I was growing up. It’s a rich, spicy ginger ale – not your usual pale stuff. It’s a real treat, and its mascot has always, for some reason, been a gnome.
The Naughty Gnome cocktail takes Vernors Ginger Ale to new heights by adding dark rum and a little bit of angostura bitters. The result is an even richer, slightly less spicy concoction that might change your whole perception of ginger ale as a mixer.
- 1 ounce Captain Morgan Private Stock dark rum
- 4 ounces Vernors
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice. Pour the rum into it, followed by the Vernors. Add the bitters and stir.
