It’s a little spicy and a little sweet, and it has only two ingredients, dark rum (the ‘dark’) and ginger beer (the ‘stormy’). For best results, use a brand of ginger beer you like. However, your choice of rum is crucial in making this drink. To be “authentic”, a Dark and Stormy should be made with Gosling’s dark rum, though Myer’s dark rum is acceptable as an alternative.
