Dark and Stormy Recipe Has Only Three Ingredients
The dark and stormy comes out of Bermuda and combines only three ingredients. Dark rum, Ginger beer and a splash of lime. 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.
How do you prepare for bad weather?
Us, well we’ve stocked up on candles, batteries, canned goods and water. More importantly, though, we made a huge batch of cookies!
