Dark ‘n’ Stormy Classic Cocktail

The Dark ‘n’ Stormy is a classic old cocktail that blends Gosling’s Black Seal rum with ginger beer. That makes it a very simple but very tasty cocktail.

The Gosling’s is sweeter than most dark rums, with stronger caramel notes that can become addictive. Add to that the spice and flavor of a good ginger beer, and you’ve got something wonderful happening.

One of the nice things about this cocktail is how easy it is to make – there’s no shaking. You just build the ingredients in a highball glass, and stir it up if you’re feeling fancy. It’s a great option for parties, too, because it just about can’t miss.
