The History Of The “Dark N’ Stormy”

Today in #CocktailCulture the history of the “Dark N’ Stormy”, made by @cjrolon at the @delanobeachclub
In the United States, the name “Dark ‘N Stormy” is a trademark of Gosling Brothers Ltd of Bermuda. This means that in the US, legally to be called a Dark ‘N Stormy the drink must be made with Gosling Black Seal rum and ginger beer.
Gosling Brother’s recipe was invented in Bermuda just after World War I. The drink is promoted in the sailing and sail racing community. Gosling’s sponsors the Newport to Bermuda Race and the 35th Edition of the America’s Cup races to be held in Bermuda in 2017.

Fill a tall glass with ice, and add the rum.
