Whenever we're feeling beachy, or, um, trapped inside by NYC hurricanes, we always crave a spicy/sweet/fizzy dark & stormy + a few rounds of scrabble or milles bourne by candlelight. You'll feel refreshed, warmed to the cockles, and supremely nautical in a blissfully tipsy manner.
PS- It's the national drink of Bermuda. How can you go wrong?
Very easy to adapt and tinker around with to suit your own tastes.
2 ounces Gosling’s Black Seal rum (or other dark rum)
About 4 ounces Gosling’s Stormy Ginger Beer (or other ginger beer)
Lime slice, for garnish (optional).
Fill a highball glass with ice and add the rum. Top with the ginger beer and garnish with the lime slice.
