dark & stormy
Makes 1 cocktail
The Dark & Stormy originated in Bermuda, where it was made with ginger beer rather than ginger ale. The distinction bears mentioning, as ginger ale would seem a likely substitute. What’s the difference? Ginger beer has a much stronger ginger flavor that can stand up to the fullness of the dark rum. It’s worth the extra effort to find the real McCoy!
- 2 ounces dark rum, such as Gosling’s
- Juice of ½ lime
- 4 ounces Ginger beer
Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour the rum and lime juice into the glass, then add the ginger beer and stir to incorporate.
