New Yorkers do hurricanes differently than most.  We stock up on booze, plan a party, and use the threat of a power outage as an excuse to splurge on Diptyque candles. With that in mind, we’ve got the perfect cocktail for your Sunday evening as you await impending doom: the Dark & Stormy.

Hurricane Cocktail: Dark & Stormy

Goslings Black Seal Rum from Bermuda claims the drink as their own, but any type of rum will do.  Take a rocks glass full of ice and pour in 2 oz. of rum then stir in 8 oz. of ginger beer and top off with a twist of lime.  The spicy flavor from the ginger beer mixes with the full, rich flavor of rum for a cozy cocktail that has a little zing.  Curl up next to some scented candles and you’re all set for a dark and stormy night in.
