dark and stormy

  • Currently 4/5
a spicy highball that's not only the "national drink of Bermuda" but also a trademarked drink! bizarre...
2 oz dark/black rum
8 oz ginger beer
lime wedge (optional, but highly recommended)
special equipment
tall glass tumbler (about 8-12 oz)
1. in a highball glass filled with ice, pour ginger beer.
2. add rum. to retain a 2-tone distinction between the dark and stormy, carefully pour in the rum on the back of a spoon.
3. add twist of lime, if you so desire, and enjoy.
ginger beer is not the same thing as ginger ale. recipe here for homemade brew.

other variations double the rum, with a ratio closer to 1:2. imagine this is a matter of taste depending upon which rum and/or ginger beer is used.

recommend using Gosling's Black Seal Rum (80 proof) and Barritt's Ginger Beer or Bundaberg Ginger Beer.
