Served in a highball glass looking elegantly delicious and boasting the velvet tones of the rum and ginger beer, there’s arguably no cocktail as immediately inviting as the Perfect Storm, also known as a Dark ‘n’ Stormy. It beckons you over with its cool, crisp appearance and dash of fruity playfulness.

There’s no lengthy history to uncover here: no significant tales which prop up this drink as something that might otherwise have been lost in the crowd. Instead, this is a cocktail whose staying power relies solely on the broadness of its appeal in the here and now. Plus, with its good looks and simple yet deep and satisfying taste, we don’t think it will be going anywhere soon.

The rich and sometimes spicy notes of the finest dark rums pair perfectly with the warmth of the three varieties of ginger that’s packed into Fever-Tree Ginger Beer. The two paired together make for one of the most refreshing cocktails around.
