  • Dark ‘n’ Stormy

     

    Ingredients: Dark rum, ginger beer, lime

    Backstory: A drink backed by a brand and even trademarked, the Dark ‘n’ Stormy still manages to feel hardly corporate while evoking relaxation and island life. The story goes there was an Englishman living in Bermuda who created a dark rum he named after himself—Gosling’s. Also on the tiny island were Royal Navy officers who liked mixing Mr. Gosling’s rum with the ginger beer they had been brewing to help combat their own seasickness. The drink was delicious, and the intriguing color and look of the cocktail led to its fanciful name.

    Why it’s a classic: “This is a year-round, tasty, highball cocktail. Combining delicious dark rum, with spicy, sweet ginger beer and the acidity of a well squeezed lime wedge, it’s perfect for most all occasions.”—Laboy

    Starter recipe:

    1 part Dark rum
    2 parts ginger beer

    Fill glass with ice, add, rum, then top with ginger beer. Squeeze in, then garnish with a lime wedge.
