Dark 'n Stormy is the national Drink of Bermuda. Made with three ingredients, it is refreshing pretty easy to make.

The name was inspired by an old fisherman who when confronted with the dark, swirling tempest of a cocktail remarked that it resembled a "cloud only a fool or a deadman would sail under.’”

This drink is quite strong and will knock your socks off. So make sure you are in for the evening or have some friends to drive you home.

What is the flavor profile?

Crisp, sour, refreshing, strong with hints of ginger with a lime twist.

What ingredients will I need to make this?

Ginger beer, dark rum, and lime juice.

You can substitute the Gosling's Black Seal Rum for any dark rum you have at hand.

Let's make it!
