We’re giving an early toast to this long weekend with a Bermudan classic: the Dark ‘n’ Stormy. This cocktail dates back to the early 20th century, first made popular among the Royal Navy. While it’s pretty simple, this fizzy combo will have you smiling (and sipping) all weekend long. You’ll only need three things:

  • 2 oz. Gosling’s Black Seal Rum
  • 3 oz. ginger beer
  • ½ oz. lime juice

Combine the ingredients in a tall glass with ice and stir. But, don’t try adding any substitutions to this thirst quencher. By copyright law, in order to use this cocktail’s namesake, you’ll have to stick with Gosling’s. So just make sure not to cheat and tell.
