If youre not familiar with a traditional Dark and Stormy then shame on you! Its one of my favorite cocktails and we make it all the time down when we have get-togethers. The traditional Dark and Stormy is just spiced rum and ginger beer pretty simple. This one is a little different with the citrus and mint which I think plays off the ginger beer fantastically. Ginger beer is different than Ginger ale by the way people. Make sure its ginger beer! Ginger beer is fermented like beer, while gingerale which is a carbonated soda with ginger flavor. Even though it says beer in the name it is still a non-alcoholic beverage.
