Dark ‘n Stormy recipe – one of Bermuda’s most popular drinks

Here’s how to make a proper Dark ‘n Stormy

  • Pour 6 oz ginger beer (either Barritts or Gosling’s brand) into a tall glass filled with ice
  • Float 2 oz of Gosling’s Black Seal Rum on top. Stir until it looks like a storm cloud.

Optional garnish: lime wedge. 

There’s a magical quality to every Bermuda visit. This is one fine way to duplicate one of the sweetest Bermudian things you can enjoy, even if you’re back on the mainland. It works! I do it all the time.

The Dark ‘n Stormy is trademarked by Gosling’s, so be sure to use real Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, a truly fine rum.

Chris Bacon’s “Flotilla”

Flotilla by Chris Bacon

‘Flotilla‘ is a beautiful painting! One of the most moving I’ve ever experienced. There is fluidity, movement, emotion, softness, strength, and innocence in this work.  At nearly 30 inches wide, it’s a large piece, with a real presence. The original work of art is available, or as a hand-made print from the artist… http://www.chrisbacon.com/

Bacon grew up in many places around the world as his family followed his father’s work relocations. One of Chris’s favourite childhood locations was Bermuda. He returns often. He is equally drawn to the north and camps and canoes often. He was recognized in 2004 with the Master Wildlife Artist Award from Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, in Wausau, Wisconsin.
