Recipe Notes:

The recipe provided for this Sugar Free Dark and Stormy Cocktail is for 2 servings, and is made in a cocktail shaker. In the original making of this recipe, the cocktail is not shaken in a cocktail shaker. You can simply pour it into your glass and stir if you want, but we love to mingle all the ingredients together. Again, optional. In addition, angostura bitters are not traditionally used. Feel free to leave them out if you want, but again, we like them! Dark and Stormy purists would probably crucify us for the way we make these.

Mixers: For this drink you want to use ginger beer, not ginger ale. If you aren’t concerned with carbs, feel free to use any ginger beer you want. To make this low carb, simply swap regular ginger beer for a low carb version like Diet Goslings. We think it tastes delicious!

Liquor: For this drink you want to use a spiced rum of your choice if you can get your hands on it. We don’t like using all spiced rum, so we mix spiced rum with dark rum. If you don’t have spiced rum, dark rum will do.
