* DARK AND STORMY VANILLA COCKTAILS *
Combine 2 cups dark rum with 3 cups ginger beer (not ginger ale), the juice of 4 limes and a tiny splash of vanilla extract in a pitcher. Serve on the rocks with lime wedges.
My best pal M had this set when we were growing up, and it reminds me of her parents' living room, drinking pop and watching Tom Selleck movies on her Betamax. Mind you, this was far past the era in which this aluminum set was made and obviously her folks had had these for quite some time prior to us getting our early-1980s hands on them. But hey, Selleck's mustache, a wall-to-wall carpet den, a few Barbies and chex mix snacks? Memories are memories!
