I’ll just come out at say that this is not a traditional or authentic dark and stormy recipe!  I’ve found this one to be equally delicious- if not better, for summer with its lighter taste and appearance.  A traditional dark and stormy is made with Gosling’s rum and homemade ginger beer.  I’ve had an authentic dark and stormy, but find it more appropriate for a crisp fall day or cold winter evening.  Give this version a try!


-1 bottle of ginger beer
-2 oz. dark rum
-1/4 lime, juiced
-1 slice of lime, for rim

Squeeze lime into tall glass full of ice.  Pour in ginger beer.  Add shot of rum and stir.  Garnish rim with slice of lime.

Enjoy outside- while you can still enjoy summer!
