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
Although we recommend the twist of adding lime juice, the Dark Rum cannot be substituted for any other if you want to call the drink a Dark N Stormy. If you do, Goslings will come after you! You have been warned. However, if you want to make a Rum Buck with lime and ginger beer, then you can use whatever Rum you like!
