So last night we stopped at a bar that some other friends had previously found served dark & stormies. (Goslings Bermuda Dark Rum, ginger beer, and a spalsh of bitters – according to the older Bermudan bartender who introduced me to it my first night there several years ago. A week with no looking back for another drink.) So I order me a dark & stormy. With bitters. And out comes something called scrumpies. Or something like that. Which is alcoholic ginger beer. Which I guess was a nice thought for the alcoholoics but it just made my rum taste like beer. Which is not a taste I like. So it was not a dark & stormy night.
