Gosling’s Dark ‘n Stormy

Gosling’s Dark ‘n Stormy

Before I go in to detail, I want to state how much I enjoyed this pre-mixed ginger beer and rum cocktail. But first of all, I feel I ought to explain that my enjoyment may partly have been because I had two parallel tipples that I could not help to compare with this Gosling’s little wonder.

I had tried a brand of ginger beer (I do love ginger beer) that I found oddly overpowering, medicinal, herby and unpleasant. Whereas the ginger beer in Gosling’s Dark ‘n Stormy was refreshing with just enough kick of ginger fizz. I had also tried another pre-mixed rum cocktail from a different brand. That rum cocktail was dominated by rum, and difficult to enjoy. The rum in Gisling’s Dark ‘n Stormy does not dominate the ginger beer, they work very well together and the result is a refreshing cocktail.

So, perhaps my enjoyment of Gosling’s was partly due to comparison with the two unpleasant beverages I had recently sampled. We don’t tend to buy these canned pre-mixed cocktails. But recently our nephew wanted to have a party for his return to London, and we were keen to become acquainted with his friends. We decided that our drinks cabinet would not feature during the evening, and instead we agreed there would be a limited amount of alcoholic drinks and an unlimited amount of soft drinks and plenty of snacks. So Wills and I sat down to place an online grocery order, and as well as beer, we ended up with a variety of pre-mixed cocktails, which Wills reckoned the girls would drink.

With encouragement from Wills, I sampled one of each for this site, and I can categorically say that my absolute favourite was Gosling’s Dark ‘n Stormy.
