Dark N' Stormy

To be a real Dark N’ Stormy you’d have to use Gibsons Rum and Ginger beer. I recommend picking up a “funkier” rum like Kraken Spiced Rum.


  • 2 oz Dark Rum

  • 3 1/3 oz Ginger Beer

  • Couple dashes of bitters


  • Chill a rocks glass or a double rocks glass

  • Put salt on a small plate (or a lid to a deli container works great)

  • Take a lime wedge and cut a slit into the flesh, halfway to the rind

  • Put the rim of the glass in the slit and run the lime along the whole length

  • Turn glass upside down on the salt plate (lid) to coat the top of the glass

  • Combine tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and agave nectar into shaker filled with ice.

  • Shake for 30 seconds.

  • Serve in chilled salted glass with the lime wedge on the rim.
