Dark and Stormy

Dark and Stormy

In case you needed to know what the perfect drink to ease the transition from Summer to Fall is, it’s this:

Dark and Stormy

  • 2oz Gosling’s Black Seal Rum*
  • 1oz lime juice
  • Ginger beer (I use Fever Tree in mine)

In an ice-filled highball or collins glass, add the rum and lime juice. Give those a quick stir to combine, then top up with the ginger beer, and give it another stir to combine. Sit back, put your feet up, and forget about life for a while, you’ve earned it.

* technically it’s not a Dark and Stormy unless you use this specific rum, but since when did we care about “technically”? Use any rum you feel like. Although if you ask us, the Gosling’s makes a particularly nice drink…
