Dark and Stormy!

The drink not your day!

The Dark and Stormy is Bermuda's favorite cocktail. Made with Black Seal Rum and extra spicy ginger beer, it was brought to Newport in 1906 via the Newport- Bermuda Race. A ocean race for amateur sailors. Now known as the official cocktail for Newport sailors, it can make the perfect signature drink for your Rehearsal Dinner or Clam Bake Wedding. I like to use this as a signature drink at Clam Bake Rehearsal Dinners. Next time you are in town try one or make one at home.

1½ oz Gosling's Black Seal Rum
Ginger Beer
Method:1½ oz Gosling's Black Seal Rum, top with Barritts ginger beer.

When we went to Bermuda for our honeymoon, my husband had a Black & Stormy! We wish we would have brought home some Gosling's Rum, but we didn't. Know of anywhere we can order from?

Most liquor stores carry it.If they dont they can order it for you .the trick is the ginger beer NOT ginger ale.
Ginger Beer is extra spicy SOOO good!
