These particular glasses are part of my birds collection of vintage bar-ware. The gold emblazoned ducks pictured were a common theme. I also have a number of red and gold emblazoned pheasant glasses which are some of my favorites.
How to Make a Dark and Stormy
To make a Dark and Stormy, you’ll need dark rum (we used Gosling’s Black Seal) and ginger beer. Any type of ginger beer will work for this recipe.
You’ll add the rum to a glass filled with ice and float with ginger beer. Garnishes are typically a lime wedge. If you like rum, give my Hemingway Daiquiri a try as well.
Dark and Stormy Litigation
There has been quite a bit of litigation regarding this cocktail due to the fact that Gosling Brothers Ltd. owns the trademark for Dark ‘N Stormy® and some have apparently attempted to share the recipe without using what they consider to be the proper ingredients (namely Gosling’s Black Seal Rum). For an interesting breakdown of the litigation, check out this website.
