Dark 'n' Stormy
A Daiquiri made with pungent dark rum, topped and made refreshing with spicy ginger beer. Part of the Mule family - but is distinctive due to the strong flavour of the dark rum.
Simpler Dark 'N' Stormy Highball
The national drink of Bermuda, where ginger beer and Gosling's rum (a brand of dark rum most associated with this cocktail) are produced.
Who first made or named the Dark 'N' Stormy is unknown but legend has it that it was created, or at least first enjoyed, by British sailors on shore leave in Bermuda after World War I.
