This is a turmeric-laced twist on a Dark and Stormy, the classic dark rum and ginger beer combo. If you don't have fresh turmeric, substitute 1 teaspoon ground turmeric. Lime boosts the tartness of turmeric to make a delightfully refreshing beverage. Myers's Rum is easy to find, but there are many small-batch dark rums now on the market; you may want to experiment with their subtle nuances.
