The Stormy Daniels Cocktail Is So Wrong It's Right

Americans may be divided politically but we can all agree on life's simple pleasures: a glass of whiskey, a good-looking woman, and a bad joke about our absurdly dysfunctional government. Like its headline grabbing namesake - who went from porn star to star witness in the Donald Trump trial - the Stormy Daniels cocktail has taken center stage across the United States. If you've looked at a bar menu lately, chances are you've seen this spin on the classic Dark and Stormy, which swaps out rum for Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey. Next time you're bored with your usual cocktail, order a Stormy Daniels and raise a glass to our broken political system.

Stormy Daniels Ingredients

  • 2 oz Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey
  • 3 oz Ginger Beer
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • Lime Wedge For Garnish
  • Ice

How To Make A Stormy Daniels

  1. Fill a chilled glass with ice.
  2. Pour in whiskey and fresh lime juice.
  3. Top with ginger beer and stir gently.
  4. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Use a high-quality ginger beer to bring out the best flavors in your Stormy Daniels. The spicy kick from the ginger beer complements the softness of Jack Daniel’s perfectly.

Stormy Daniels Riff

For a spicier twist, substitute Jack Daniel’s rye for their Tennessee Whiskey. This version, which we call “The Rye of the Storm,” adds an extra layer of complexity with the peppery notes of rye whiskey, making it a bold and exciting variation of this modern classic.
