Dark and Stormy

Dark and Stormy cocktail

Type: Cocktail

The Dark and Stormy cocktail is simple, with only three ingredients, but getting the right measures of each is crucial. A popular cocktail using dark rum, which is key to the Dark and Stormy’s rich flavour and deep colour. Using ginger beer (not ginger ale) gives the cocktail its intense ginger flavour; you want it to be brewed and fermented but non-alcoholic. Make sure the lime juice is freshly squeezed - avoid bottled lime juice as they often have added preservatives and other chemicals and lack the freshness of squeezed juice.
