The quality and type of rum make a big difference when mixing your own Dark & Stormy cocktail. This original from Bermuda, recorded in bartender Salvatore Calabrese’s book “Complete Home Bartender’s Guide,” is made with the local Gossens dark rum.
Dark and Stormy
1 1/2 ounces dark rum
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
Chilled ginger beer
Pour rum and lime juice into an ice-filled goblet or highball glass. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime twist. Enjoy!
