Dark and Stormy Recipe

Dark and Stormy Cocktail Recipe

We’re getting ready for hurricane Sandy here on the East coast. So, we thought sharing our Dark and Stormy recipe with you was appropriate.

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.

Us, well we’ve stocked up on candles, batteries, canned goods and water. More importantly, though, we made a huge batch of cookies!

    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 :)

    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!
