Dark'n Stormy Recipe

The Dark'n Stormy cocktail is a classic drink that combines ginger beer, dark rum, and lime. The drink originated on the island of Bermuda in 1944 when British Royal Navy officer Gosling began selling his newly created ginger beer to American sailors who were stationed there. One evening an American naval commander ordered a Dark'n Stormy for himself at the Hamilton Club Hotel where Gosling was having dinner with some friends. A waiter mistakenly added Gosling's own dark rum into the mix rather than just soda water, leading to what he called "The Rum Swizzle." His guests liked it so much they wanted him to serve it again the following day. That night he came up with this recipe which has become known as "Dark 'N Storm
