Cocktail Files: Dark Storm

Posted on 09th August 2016

The 16th of August is National Rum Day and the perfect way to celebrate is by creating a tasty Dark Storm cocktail. Inject some Venezuelan sun into your British summertime with this refreshing long drink, made with Diplomatico Reserva rum, ginger ale and lime. 

The great thing about Diplomatico Reserva is its versatility. Great sipped on its own, or over ice, it's equally spectacular in a Dark Storm. A take on Bermuda's national drink, Venezuelan rum mingles with ginger beer and lime juice to create a thirst-quenching summer long drink.


50ml Diplomatico Reserva
15ml Lime juice
3 dashes Angostura Bitters
Top up with Ginger Beer


Pour rum into a highball glass, add cubed ice and the lime juice and top up with ginger beer. Add bitters as a float.
