Try This Perfect Storm Of A Cocktail, If You Dare

This cocktail is named after a local tragedy. The Andrea Gail was a commercial fishing vessel that left Gloucester with a six-man crew and was lost at sea during "The Perfect Storm" of 1991.

The Andrea Gail cocktail is a take on the Dark and Stormy, which uses rum and ginger beer. Ginger beer is non-alcoholic but this version uses a beer, with alcohol, that is ginger flavored. Here's the recipe prepared by Deuxave bartender Emily Warren:
