Dark and Stormy


We first had this when Gordie's cousin Woody made it for us in St. Louis over Christmas time. Because of this, I associate the drink with dark, cold weather, even though it's rather tropical by nature.

Makes 1 drink:

2 oz. Gosling's Black Seal Black Rum (needs to be dark rum)
3/4 oz. lime juice
1/4 oz. simple syrup
ginger ale or ginger beer

Mix first three ingredients in a low-ball glass filled with ice. Top with ginger ale or ginger beer.

  1. This is the old way we made a dark and stormy. Now, the recipe I prefer is: fill a (short or tall) glass with ice, add 1 1/2 or 2 oz. dark rum, a splash of lime juice, and top with ginger beer/ ale. Less sweet and simpler to remember.
