In Topic: What's the best ginger beer for a Dark 'n Stormy?

09 November 2010 - 07:35 AM

A very good question. I only had my first D&S a few years ago, made with Havana Club. I hadn't been a fan of rum drinks, but this was different. I have since had them made with watery ginger beer stuff, with over-produced "artisanal" cordials that tasted like an incinerated gingerbread house; and with Gosling's own super sweet canned ginger beer. I have to agree with Nathan. Reed's extra ginger is the driest, and therefore best in my opinion for a good Dark & Stormy. With Gosling's, of course, if one can't secure any Havana Club.

Wow. I'm shocked. A real loss.

So very sad. I was such a fan.

Thanks all for the tips. Prasantrin and Nancy, the one place in my immediate area that carries dry ice has I believe a 10-pound minumum order. Memesuze, I unfortunately won't be able to go to NJ ahead of time, and I'm not sure I want to schlep the Cuisinart out there the day before. (We usually travel on the day of anyway.) Splinky, your idea isn't bad. My mother is very adamant about everyone staying out of the kitchen while she makes the meal, but after that she's able to relax and cede control. And Suzanne, the pint is just to augment the half-gallon of vanilla ice cream we usually have.

It's not worth the trouble. Just bring pie(s).
