    Dark&Stormy is’nt for me!!!Ginger Beer,what? If I want to have a beer,it better come out of a can,or,bottle.This just sounds real bad to me.Hope someone else can have one of these for me.UGH,UGH is all I can say here.See ya’ll later. Have a great week.

  2. Ginger beer isn’t ‘beer’. It’s more like spicy, yummy, much less sweet ginger ale. Which isn’t really ‘ale’ either. Dark ‘n’ Stormys are a personal fave, if you want something sweeter, try w/ ginger ale, which I’m thinking is called a ‘Partly Cloudy’.

  3. Merry Starr says

    I’ve HAD one of these without knowing the proper name. Seriously, they are very good! Try Vernor’s ginger ale if ginger beer isn’t available. The bite of the ginger mixes nicely with the smoothness of the rum and the contrast works…at least for me. I squeezed my lime wedge into the concoction, and it added it’s own zing. I like it!

  4. Should give a try….

  5. Josh Miller says

  7. I love love love this drink! Fever Tree Ginger beer gives it a spicy kick that makes it irresistible!
