Many Halloween type stories begin with “It was a dark and stormy night”, so the Dark ‘n’ Stormy cocktail is perfect for this time of year, or anytime! It’s got rich, earthy dark rum, vanilla and brown sugar flavors. Then adding in the spicy ginger beer, filled with bubbles, and a bit of lime for some tang, you’ll have the most spooktacular cocktail ready to enjoy.
