This elevated take on a rum and ginger cocktail is the three-ingredient recipe you need for summer

For lovers of spicy complexity, this cocktail recipe is a must to mix up at home. Bar Non Solo’s Connor Griesdale has created this lovely libation that, with only three ingredients, is incredibly simple to construct — yet it tastes far from one dimensional. Premium golden rum is complemented beautifully by Pedro Ximenez sherry, with notes of raisin, fig, molasses, nuts and chocolate. Schweppes 1783 Golden Ginger Ale provides the ideal mixer; a soft, clean and refreshing serve that packs just the right level of kick and a hint of ginger.
