Dark & Stormy.... started as my mood, evolved into my drink and now it's the weather I will sleep peacefully to

Dark & Stormy Cocktail
 Only two very long days in this week so far but OMG, they were rough.  I was feelin' a bit grrrrrrr and when I stopped at World Market on my way home {love that place} I saw Ginger Beer and thought immediately.... DARK. AND. STORMY.


I've seen a lot of recipes over the years with far fancier rums but I tend to have Myer's Dark on hand and so my quick Tuesday, long days, short week Dark & Stormy is this....


WHAT YOU NEED:
3 oz. Myers Dark Rum
8 oz of Ginger Beer
1 oz. fresh lime juice {squeeze a half of a lime}
LOTS of ice

WHAT YOU DO:
Pack your favorite glass with ice.... a pilsner would work, or large wine glass, I have some tall wide glasses from C&B that I love for my ice packed drinks.  


Squeeze you lime over the ice, 
fill with Ginger Beer and top with Rum.  
Stir well, sip and see the storminess evaporate.


Bring it on Wednesday, oh yeah it's a holiday ;)

  9. This recipe is wrong. A true Dark 'n Stormy (which is the national drink of Bermuda, where I am from) is made using Gosling's Black Seal rum and Barritt's ginger beer. What you have a recipe for here is ginger beer with rum.

    1. Actually, this recipe is quite RIGHT. It's a GREAT drink, simple and delicious! I'd love to try your/the official Dark & Stormy as well, so please don't hesitate to share your treat.... I'm always open to a new cocktail! Cheers!

    2. I did share, Gosling's and Barritt's. Simple as can be! Goslings' actually has a trademark on Dark n' Stormy in Bermuda. Using any other rum is just treacherous.
