So we were just browsing around in Costco, and stumbled over a unique sounding drink: Dark’n Stormy. It is a cocktail composed of ginger beer mixed with rum (specifically Black Seal black rum in this case). I can definitely say it’s worth a try, and that I would love to make my own Dark’n Stormy. Not only would that substantially cheaper, but it’s so I can make it lower calorie by using a zero sugar/reduced sugar ginger beer (which tends to be very sugary). For those who don’t know, ginger beer is just a stronger ginger ale; it isn’t alcoholic, and black rum is most aged rum variant, obtaining its color and unique flavor from the wooden casks it is aged in. Dark and Stormy cocktails are also garnished with a lime peel (or has lime added to it).
