Known around the sailing community as “Bermuda’s National Drink” and popular in British Commonwealth countries, the dark ‘n’ stormy is one of the most refreshing summer drinks I’ve ever had the pleasure of sipping on.
It is typically made with Goslings black rum and Barritts ginger beer, but you can substitute any dark rum or ginger beer. Ginger beer is non-alcoholic and tastes like an incredibly potent ginger ale full of fresh ginger. Don’t like rum? Substitute vodka and call it a Moscow Mule! The only substitutions you can’t make are spiced rum or ginger ale- you definitely want plain dark rum and ginger beer.
