Dark & Stormy

You'll need

60 ml dark rum To fill: ginger beer To garnish: lime slices


  • 01
  • Pour rum into a tumbler filled with ice. Add ginger beer to fill, garnish with lime and serve.

This is traditionally made with Gosling's Black Seal, a rich dark rum from Bermuda, and the drink and the brand are so synonymous that Gosling's has registered the name. It's not readily available in Australia, though, so we recommend a similarly complex, caramel-toned rum from Flor de Caña or Ron Zacapa. And the ginger beer? Bundaberg's rum might not be our first choice here, but their natural brew is our favourite mixer. Pictured with silver dollar burgers.
