*Boozy Fridays present the Dark’n Stormy Cocktail*
Dark ‘n’ Stormy is the official cocktail of Bermuda.
Bermuda, 1860. The Gosling family begins experimenting with rum, as families do. The result is a dark, distinct, full-bodied “old rum,” which would become Gosling’s Black Seal. Elsewhere on the island, the British Royal Navy, satisfied with having conquered the known world, does the next logical thing: they start brewing beer. Ginger beer. It’s unclear why exactly, but one theory suggests it may have had something to do with ginger’s effectiveness in combating seasickness. Another posits that is was an effort to wean sailors off rum.
According to a legend, the name Dark ‘n’ Stormy was coined by a sailor sometime after World War I who, while enjoying the cocktail, commented that it was the “colour” of a cloud only a fool or a dead man would sail under.”
Dark’n Stormy formula:
– 50 ml Gosling’s Black Seal Rum
– 2 wedge of lime squeeze and drop in
-Gosglings Ginger Beer top up
Garnish: Lime wedge-Ice cubed
