Gastronomy: Dark and Stormy

It’s spooky, it’s creepy, it’s Halloween: How about a Dark and Stormy?

Last weekend, my wonderful, hospitable neighbors had us over for dinner after our local children's Halloween parade. While all of our crazy toddlers were running amuck from an overabundance of Halloween sugared treats, the adults decided to overindulge, too! The Dark and Stormy splendidly weather-proofed us from the noisy deluge of 10 overactive, rapturous children!

Dark and Stormy

2 c spiced rum

4 c light colored ginger beer

Orange sugar
Black gummy bat, spider, or worm

Mix rum and beer gently in an iced pitcher. Distribute evenly into six orange sugar rimmed glasses. Add creepy gummy worms, spiders, or bats and toast to All Hallows Eve!

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel. After co-starting a writing and editing shop in 2002, Leah has spent her spare time frequenting her favorite cities, hangouts, and haunts. Her obsession with finding the new, innovative, and quirky is the impetus behind this site. Leah lives with her two sons and husband in North San Diego County.
