Bartender tips

To smoke your glass, take a cinnamon stick and hold it above a flame (lighter or torch) until it begins to smoke.
Place the smoking cinnamon stick in a whisky glass and turn the glass over so that the cinnamon smoke envelops the inside (like a bell).
Remove the cinnamon stick after a minute and immediately fill the glass with ice cubes to preserve the smoky aroma.

Origins of the cocktail

The Dark & Stormy was born by mistake in the 19th century in the Bermuda archipelago.


Very much consumed in the whole archipelago and more globally in all the Anglo-Saxon and Commonwealth countries, ginger beer is also an essential product in Bermuda.


The mistake was made in 1830 when the bartender of Bermuda's most famous cocktail bar mistakenly spilled some dark rum into a customer's ginger beer. An intense foam was instantly created and, in its effervescence, formed a cloud of dark foam on top of the glass.

The customer, a sailor of the British Navy, tasted this drink and compared it to a stormy night at sea and named this cocktail: Dark & Stormy.
