Dark 'n' Stormy

Print Email

I had my first Dark 'n' Stormy in Maine at my friend Bob Ireland's House, affectionately known as "The Ship." This drink is refreshing, and people seem to really like it. One of my clients, EGV, renamed the drink "the dirty rotten bastard." You gotta be careful, though – don't drink it like iced tea! It's fun to garnish with a thin round slice of floating lime or kiwi.

1 1/2 ounces Gosling's Black Seal Rum or any other dark rum
Splash of bitters (optional)
About 1/2 cup of ginger beer
1/2 lime

Fill a highball glass with ice, add the rum, a splash of bitters, if desired, and top with ginger beer. Squeeze the line into the glass, stir, and add the lime to the drink.
