The Dark and Stormy is the national drink of Bermuda, a country that knows a lot about dark rum, the key ingredient.
Mixed with a spicy ginger beer, the cocktail is said to have been invented just after World War I. It was particularly popular among the sailing and sail racing community, as the name served as a reminder for those ‘dark and stormy’ nights at sea.
At Middletons, we also add bitters to give the cocktail an extra kick of flavour.
