Bermuda Island – Dark and Stormy Drink
On the island of Bermuda, one of the local specialities is an alcoholic drink called the Dark and Stormy . It’s basically made of 2 ingredients :
1) Gosling’s Bermuda Dark Rum
2) Ginger Beer
I didn’t even know what a dark and stormy was until our Bermuda hotel guy warned us about not getting too close to the edge of this cliff when drinking too many dark and stormies. Now you may be wondering why you’d ever want to mix beer with rum but no worries the ginger beer is non alcoholic – it’s more or less a ginger ale. All together the Dark and Stormy tastes a little like a cross between a Jack and Ginger and a Rum and Coke. The Rum content is around 2 oz or more so this famous Bermuda drink gets the job done.
What’s even more convienent is that they sell pre-mixed Dark and Stormy drinks in a can so you can just pop one open while you’re enjoying the nice sunny beaches of Bermuda. We bought a few of these for the flight home from Bermuda – it knocked us out immediately. Next time you are in Bermuda, defnitely order one of these local drinks.
