    This is definitely not a receipe for a dark and stormy. It's ginger beer and dark rum!

    I knew a man from Bermuda, my friends dad; and according to him a dark and stormy is (Jamaican) Ginger Beer and (Goslings) black rum. I've been drinking with him for years, and that's the first drink he ever gave me.

    Add a slash of grenadine to it as well. Makes the perfect compliment to the bitter beer taste.
