Thunder Boomer Cocktail

Interestingly, a Dark N Stormy can only be a Dark N Stormy with Gosling’s Black Seal rum.

As in, legally speaking, the name is trademarked and has to have Gosling’s Black Seal rum to be a Dark N Stormy.

I however prefer black rums other than Gosling’s Black Seal-and I didn’t even have black rum in the house this week. I normally keep something like Kraken but today all we had was a ‘normal’ spiced rum-by normal, I mean the type of rum I think most Americans, at least around here, think of when they hear the word ‘rum’.

This is a fairly straight forward drink-but it’s going to hit a little. Ginger beer runs hot. Even not hot ginger beer runs hot. It’s not gingerale (though I do love rum in gingerale). Ginger beer is a different animal, and while purists will argue with me, I think that a brand like Goya is just fine for an application like this.

I do tend to make this drink on the weaker side. Add more rum for more of a charge.
