PREVIOUS: Havana Cocktail NEXT: Dark 'n' Stormy

Ingredients (6)

  • 2 ounces dark rum
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 1 cup ginger beer (choose a moderately sweet one, like Fentimans)
  • 1 lime slice, for garnishing


The original Dark ‘n’ Stormy (dark rum, ginger beer, and lime) comes from Bermuda. We give it the American convenience-store treatment, with ice and enough time in the blender to make it slushy and super-refreshing. Warning: You will get a brain freeze, so sip slowly!


  1. 1In a blender, combine the rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and ice. Blend on high for 15 to 20 seconds.
  2. 2Pour into a tall glass and top off with the ginger beer. Garnish with a lime slice.
