The Overcast is a unique twist on the classic Dark and Stormy cocktail, inspired by the moody weather often associated with the Puget Sound. This variation adds a hint of herbal complexity to the traditional mix.
The Overcast is a cocktail that plays with contrasting flavors. The dark rum provides a deep, rich foundation, while the ginger adds that signature spiciness. The addition of lime juice introduces a zesty brightness, and the Green Chartreuse offers herbal complexity that elevates this variation.
Flavored with whole ginger root and a hint of Japanese chili and sweetened with pure organic cane sugar.
