Stormy Drink

November first is the beginning of the most difficult two months of the year for me. It starts with the Halloween candy going on sale for pennies on the dollar and ends with New Years’ Day buffets of cornbread, mustard greens, and black eyed peas. Of course those amazing Southern desserts are always calling my name from the sideboard. In between November 1 and January 1 there are weeks of party food, dark chocolate fudge, Christmas cookies, and of course cocktails. This is where this dark and stormy cocktail fits.

I’m not without a little help, though. I try to ease up on myself on the weekends and maintain a very low carb eating plan during the week. Allowing myself 5 pounds of weight gain helps… it’s going to happen anyway and if I won’t freak out and binge eat maple fudge when I see the scale creep up a little. I always go back on induction in January and it gets me back on track.

Sigh. Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Dark and Stormy adventures await.

Happy Halloween !

Low carb treats and low carb cocktails are a big help, though. This easy Dark and Stormy cocktail is one of my secrets. Spicy, sugar free ginger beer adds no carbs and adds sparkle and flavor to the rum. Lime balances out the sweetness. It’s sort of a gingerbread flavor but not quite – I’ve always loved it.

If you love rum then this is the Stormy recipe for you. Just make sure you get a good rum like Goslings Black Seal rum. And of course, a really excellent spicy ginger beer.

Ahoy matey ! The original Dark ‘n Stormy cocktail was loved by sailors.

Why is it called a Dark and Stormy?

According to CNN’s article, the Dark and Stormy cocktail was invented in the 1800’s on the island of Bermuda. The Gosling family began making rum there and it fit well with Ginger beer that was a favorite of British sailors. Goslings Black Seal Rum is the signature rum that was used in the classic recipe.

This cocktail is also called the Dark ‘n Stormy. The classic drink was simple. It had 2 ounces of Goslings Black Seal Rum, 4-5 ounces of Ginger Beer, lime, and ice. A “real” Dark ‘n Stormy has to have Goslings Black Seal Rum.
