What’s the unofficial drink of Bermuda? And of the sailing or boating community? It’s a dark, sweet, spicy cocktail appropriately called the Dark and Stormy. If you are thinking of a cocktail gift that is not run of the mill, the Dark ‘N Stormy kit is perfect. It’s the most recognized drink in the boating world and one of the most popular cocktails with rum the world over.
So, the story goes that it was sometime after the end to World War I, that the Dark and Stormy was born. It was created on the island of Bermuda, home to many a shipwreck, and also home to the Goslings, who had already created a name on the island with their rum production.
Eventually, the sailors who frequented Bermuda realized that a marriage between the standard Gosling’s rum and ginger beer was a match made in heaven. Legend has it that the name, Dark and Stormy, comes from a sailor who, suitably drunk, likened the cocktail’s dark looks to the stormy clouds at sea.
