I used a good local beer in this cocktail, Appalachian Ginger Beer. One of the best goshdarn cocktails I've had in a LONG time. This might just be my new favorite drinks.

This was awful. I wasted my money buying the ingredients to make this. Only chose one star because I had to for this rating to go through.

Be sure it's GOSLINGS dark rum, not just any dark rum!

Simple yet delicious!

Please take the advice about using Gosling's Black Seal Rum and Gosling's Ginger Beer. This is a great drink with the proper ingredients. It is one of my favorites.

This drink starts out with a wallop, then grows on you! It's delicious --as my friend Ann said, "a good sipping cocktail." And such an attractive drink, too!

This recipe deserves a 5 star rating if you use Gosling's Black Seal Rum (80 proof). I was introduced to this delicious cocktail many years ago when I vacationed in Bermuda and it is my favorite adult beverage.

I use Goslings Rum, then I squeeze some fresh lime over the rum and ice.. I add the ginger beer , shake and stir serve over fresh ice...and one more squeeze of lime...but the real way to make it look "dark n stormy " is to pour the ginger beer over the ice then pour the rum it creates a dark cloud .... It looks cool but the first sip is all rum ..
