Dark ‘n’ Stormy



The other evening we fancied a bit of old school alternative comedy so, in the spirit of ‘loving local’ we decided to stick on Comic Strip Presents Five Go Mad in Dorset from 1982.  All the talk of “lashings and lashings of ginger beer” gave us a real craving for the stuff.  Dark’n’Stormy is a classic Bermudan cocktail and perfectly refreshing for when the weather turns warmer.  We made this one with Belvoir Ginger Beer, which is an old fashioned recipe that has a kick but doesn’t blow your head off.  Crank up the spice if you prefer but if you’re using a good quality rum then why not let that take centre stage?


50ml Goslings dark rum
12.5-25ml lime juice
ginger beer
lime wedge to garnish

Fill a tall glass with ice.
Add the rum and lime juice and stir.
Top up with ginger beer.
Garnish with the lime wedge.
