It only takes two ingredients—dark rum and ginger beer—to create this easy-drinking, refreshing classic cocktail from Bermuda.

What to buy: A Bermudan classic, a real Dark ’n’ Stormy should be made only with Gosling’s Black Seal rum. If you can’t find it, substitute another dark rum such as Myers’s, but don’t let your Bermudan friends know you’re using Jamaican rum!

If you’ve made your own Ginger Beer (and we think you should), use it here. Otherwise, look for a ginger beer that suits your taste. We prefer those with a nice note of sweet and a good kick of ginger, like Barritt’s.

This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Soda Pop project.

For a twist on your Dark ‘n’ Stormy, try making spiced rum, as Jeffrey Morgenthaler discusses in his Morgenthaler Method video here.
