Invented on the island of Bermuda in 1806 by a member of the Gosling family, as the story goes, the recipe for the Dark and Stormy cocktail was born. Although technically trademarked by Goslings Rum, a Dark ‘N Stormy is made with Gosling’s Black Seal rum and Gosling’s Stormy ginger beer, but this fan favorite has been reinvented in all ports of call far and wide
You’ll need the following equipment:
Dark 'n' Stormy
- 2 oz Dark Rum
- 3 oz Ginger Beer
- 1/2 oz Lime Juice
- Step 1 Fill a highball glass with ice and then add the dark rum.
- Step 2 Top with ginger beer and lime juice.
- Step 3 Stir well
- Step 4 Garnish with a lime wedge
