Bustle recently put together a recipe for a delicious rum-based cocktail that is infused with sweet stone fruit. While berries are often associated with summer, stone fruit is equally appropriate for cooler weather. This recipe takes advantage of the late summer harvest by adding plums to a traditional cocktail.

The easy recipe puts a summertime twist on the classic 'Dark and Storm' recipe. The delicious cocktail features spiced rum, ginger beer, plum slices and a wedge of lime. The plum is muddled directly in the drink, which provides a hint of sweetness and astringency. The delicate taste of the sweet stone fruit pairs perfectly with the powerful flavors of the rum and ginger beer. The muddled skin also gives the cocktail a gorgeous mauve color that makes it appear even more tantalizing.
