The Dark ‘n Stormy Will Set You Free

1 Min Read

I don’t care what anyone tells you, the Dark n’ Stormy is from Bermuda and it has to be made with Gosling’s Black Rum and Gosling’s Ginger Beer for it to be true to form. Just to make sure the recipe was safe to recommend, I tested around a hundred of them on several trips “in-country” which is even more valiant when you realize I had to very drunkenly operate a moped to make that happen. But I did it for you. You’re welcome.

The drink could not be easier to make:

Load a highball with ice. Pour in a generous amount of ginger beer, follow it lovingly with black rum and then add a fresh squeeze of lime with a lime slice to garnish. Drink up and don’t ride a moped…unless you stay on grass and you go relatively slow. It’s more fun than it sounds.

    Dark n’ Stormy…my favorite!!! I agree 100% on the Gosling’s Black Rum, but their ginger beer can be difficult to impossible to find. I’ve found Bundaberg to be a very reasonable alternative and more readily available. Hell, it’s five o’clock somewhere, isn’t it?

      I usually find Gosling’s ginger beer at the larger liquor retailers. Keep searching and buy in bulk when you find it. Your sub conscience knows the difference.

    Infidel! There is but one ginger beer, and Barritt’s is it’s name. Otherwise, spot-on.
