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.
