June Gloom. Ugh.
Every year like clockwork beginning sometime in May and continuing up until the about the 4th of July, a marine layer or coastal fog settles in over southern California. I am convinced that the phenomena known as June Gloom is the universe’s way of payback for SoCal having temperatures in the 80′s during January and February when the rest of the country is buried in snow.
This weekend in particular will be pretty overcast with highs only reaching the mid-60′s. So I came up with a little cloudy cocktail with sunny, tropical flavors to take you away…
June Gloom Cocktail
1/2 lime, juice only
2 tsp cream of coconut (Coco Lopez)
1 shot light rum, or more
ginger beer (not ginger ale)
Stir together lime juice, cream of coconut, and rum in a 16 ounce high-ball. Fill with ice and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a wheel or wedge of lime. Drink and repeat!
