Thirsty Thursdays: Dark and Stormy

November 1, 2012

A dark and stormy is a classic cocktail made with dark rum and ginger beer.  The cocktail was trademarked by Gosling's Export Limited of Bermuda so naturally the rum of choice for this drink would be Goslings Black Seal Rum.  Ginger beer is a spicier, more intense version of ginger ale and should be taster without the rum to evaluate the flavor.  Serve a dark and stormy with a slice of lime.

Dark and Stormy


2.5 ounces dark rum
5 ounces ginger beer


Pour rum over ice and fill the rest of the glass with ginger beer.
