Dark 'n Stormy

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

According to a Gosling's Rum tale, this drink was invented more than 100 years ago when members of Bermuda's Royal Naval Officer's Club added a splash of the local rum to their spicy homemade ginger beer. They described its ominous hue as "the color of a cloud only a fool or dead man would sail under."

Plus: Ultimate Cocktail Guide

  1. 2 ounces dark rum, preferably Gosling's
  2. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice (optional)
  3. Ice
  4. 1 candied ginger slice
  5. 3 ounces chilled ginger beer
  6. 1 lime wheel
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the rum and lime juice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled collins glass. Stir in the ginger beer. Skewer the ginger slice and lime wheel and garnish the cocktail.
