As the rainy season sets in, there is nothing quite like the sound of raindrops tapping against the windows and the cold breeze blowing in. To combat the chill and to get into the rainy season spirit, a Dark n’ Stormy cocktail is the perfect drink to sip on. So, as the rain pours down and the winds howl outside, mix up a Dark n’ Stormy and settle in for a cozy night indoors.
This classic cocktail is the perfect way to weather the storm and unwind after a long day of classes, all without breaking the bank.
The Dark n’ Stormy is made with dark rum, ginger beer, and lime juice, and its bold and spicy flavors are sure to warm you up on a cold and rainy day. The drink’s origins can be traced back to Bermuda, where it was traditionally made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, but it has since become a popular drink around the world.
One of the best things about the Dark n’ Stormy is that it’s incredibly cheap and easy to make, making it the perfect drink for students.
The ingredients for this cocktail can be found at most grocery stores and are relatively inexpensive. The rum can be purchased for a reasonable price, and ginger beer can often be found on sale. The lime juice can be squeezed from fresh limes or purchased in a bottle, depending on your preference.
Additionally, the drink is easy to make, so you don’t need to be a mixologist to enjoy a delicious cocktail. All you need is a tall glass, ice, two ounces of dark rum, ginger beer, and lime juice. Fill the glass with ice, add the rum, top with ginger beer, and squeeze in some lime juice. Give it a quick stir, and your drink is ready to enjoy.
So the next time it’s pouring outside, grab a bottle of dark rum, a can of ginger beer, and some fresh lime juice, and mix yourself up a Dark n’ Stormy. It’s the perfect way to warm up and enjoy the rainy weather.
