Great stories have invariably started with a Dark and Stormy night, but this classic cocktail is so refreshingly delicious it’s perfect for a mild and sunny afternoon too! It’s the national drink of Bermuda and just quietly we think it’s the cocktail of choice for Australians too. 

Probably because of the dark rum – long associated with sailors, Dark and Stormy is also the official drink of the yachting fraternity. Another reason might be because it’s so easy to make.. 

Like most cocktails, the composition of Dark and Stormy depends on the temperament, taste and resources of the Mixologist. What’s 100% essential though is the quality of the ginger beer used. Bring your ‘A’ game and insist on Bundaberg Ginger Beer. It offers depth and complexity, so do your Dark and Stormy a favour and go for ginger beer with flavour!
