This Classic Dark 'N Stormy Cocktail is like the Moscow Mule's older cousin and a delicious drink. Ginger, dark rum, and lime combine all together to make a beautiful and tasty drink.


  • 1 Ounce Lime Juice (about 1 lime)
  • 2 Ounces Goslings Black Seal Rum
  • Ginger Beer to fill (about 4 ounces)


  1. Fill highball glass with ice
  2. Add Lime Juice and and Ginger Beer, but leave about 2 ounces of space on the top
  3. Layer Dark Rum on top
  4. Stir or serve with straw/spoon to allow drinker to mix.


  • Use Goslings Dark Seal Rum for an authentic (and legal) drink
  • Layer the rum on top of the drink to get a pretty effect that resembles a storm. If you do this, make sure to either stir it in front of your guest or provide a stick/spoon to stir your drink.
  • Goslings also have a ginger beer, but use whatever you have.
