Brought to fame by Gosling’s, the Dark ‘n Stormy is a cocktail with a rich maritime heritage, traditionally made with dark rum and ginger beer, creating a perfect storm of flavours.

This Bermudian classic is distinguished by its spicy ginger root flavour, a kick of dark rum, and a slightly zesty edge, offering a refreshing yet bold rum cocktail experience.


  • 2 oz or 60 ml Gosling’s Rum
  • 3 oz or 90 ml ginger beer
  • 1/2 oz or 15 ml fresh lime juice (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime wedge (for garnish)


  1. Prep: Fill a highball glass with ice cubes.
  2. Pour: Add dark rum over the ice.
  3. Top Up: Add ginger beer and the (optional) lime juice
  4. Stir: Gently combine the ingredients.
  5. Garnish: Add a lime wedge.


The Dark ‘n Stormy is trademarked by Gosling’s Rum, and as per the trademark, only Gosling’s Black Seal Rum should be used to create this beauty.

This cocktail is deeply rooted in Bermuda’s culture and history, originating from the island’s seafaring days, making it more than just a drink but a legacy of Bermudian hospitality and tradition.
