Dark n Stormy

The Dark N Stormy was first mixed on the island of Bermuda in the second half of the 1800s by combining Goslings Dark Rum and ginger beer. The mixture created a look that, legend has it, one sailor described as “the colour of a cloud only a fool or a dead man would sail under”.

The combination really benefits from an additional splash of fresh lime juice to balance the sweetness of the drink. Adding fresh citrus essentially makes the Dark N Stormy a member of the Buck family. Read More
