Enjoy Coca-cola in a new way with this Ron Con Cola from The Ordinary, a seafood hall and oyster bar on Charleston’s iconic King Street. The cocktail menu skews toward Caribbean influence. This one, particularly, is a frozen cocktail twist on rum and coke. We like the inclusion of lime and ginger beer, which lend dark n’ stormy elements to this frosty drink.
