A Dark And Stormy Rum Cocktail is a very masculine drink that’s refreshing and full of flavor. The ‘dark’ comes from the black rum and the stormy comes from the ginger beer. It’s similar to a Moscow Mule, but using rum instead of vodka.
The Dark And Stormy Rum Cocktail originated in Bermuda after WWI when the son of the owner of Gosling’s Black Seal Rum joined forces with Barrett’s Ginger Beer to market their products. The cocktail was a big hit with sailors and visitors to the island.
