The Dark and Stormy is normally made with rum (the dark) and ginger beer (the stormy). In Death & Co's recipe the ginger beer is rather substituted with ginger syrup and club soda. It's quite clever as this allows for individual decisions on how ginger-intense you want to go, and how much sparkles you want.
We served this cocktail to our guests at a dinner party. It kicks off the evening in a fun way. That ginger taste is a good conversation starter to begin with. And if you plan to serve more cocktails throughout the evening it's easy to take down the ABV on this first one by adding more club soda.
Dark and Stormy
2 oz Goslings Black Seal Rum
0,75 oz lime juice
1 oz ginger syrup
Shake all ingredients (except the club soda) with ice and strain into a highball glass. Add some fresh ice cubes and top up with the club soda.
