Dark and Stormy Cocktail

Dark rum is a must for this and if you wanted to really follow the rules, you should use Gosling’s black rum. That combined with Ginger beer (a much spicier take on ginger ale ) makes for one seriously delicious cocktail.

Adam and Joanne's Tips

  • Ginger beer and ginger ale are very different. Ginger beer is has a stronger ginger flavor. While ginger beer has no alcohol content, it can usually be found in liquor stores and shops that sell alcohol.

    We used to live in the Carolinas and dealt with plenty of storms and I grew up in MN and Chicago and had -40F winters. Thankfully, San Diego just gets earthquakes 🙂

    Great looking drink!

    Another one of my favorite combos- ginger and lime. I’m sure I’d love this one too, especially with something extra spicy like a Blenheim or Ginger People ginger beer 🙂
