Bundaberg Ginger Beer Dark & Stormy Recipe

Rum & Ginger

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, Rum & Ginger 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 rum & Ginger 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 Rum & Ginger a favour and go for ginger beer with flavour!
