- 2 oz. Gosling’s Black Seal Black Rum
- 4 oz. Ginger Beer
Build this drink in an Old Fashioned glass over ice.
OK, so this cocktail probably doesn’t look much different from the Midnight Express from last week. But, looks can be deceiving. I must say that I am really enjoying the Black Seal Rum. It is probably the richest, most flavorful rum I have ever had.
Dark N Stormy is the signature drink of Gosling’s. In fact, this drink can only be made with Gosling’s Black Seal Bermuda Black Rum. They say this is Bermuda’s National drink.
The combination of Black Seal and ginger beer is very powerful. At first, you taste the richness of the rum and then you get the flavor and spice of ginger on your tongue and the back of your throat. I did not expect that at first and I was surprised. This is a savory cocktail that perfectly balances the spice of the ginger with the sweetness of the rum. I would highly recommend this drink to anyone who enjoys rum.
