Crazy Night!

Crazy Night!

Wow!  Crazy night last night; wicked wind and torrential rain and get this… 72 degrees!  Actually it’s a typical September storm if you live in New England.   I love watching Mother Nature throw a hissy fit!  It also reminded me of a classic cocktail: the Dark N’ Stormy. 

Here’s the recipe and photo, borrowed from Andrea J. Bartholomew at

Dark N' Stormy Cocktail

Dark N’ Stormy

2 ounces Gosling’s Black Seal Rum

4 ounces Ginger Beer

Lime wedge


Fill a highball glass with ice.  Pour in the Ginger Beer, then pour in the Dark Rum over the back of a spoon to help keep the darker layer floating on top.  Garnish with a lime wedge.  (For the optional sugar garnish shown in the photo, rub a lime wedge or some simple syrup around the rim of an empty glass, and then tip the glass over into a plate of raw sugar and proceed with assembling the drink as noted above.)
