It was a dark and stormy night when we made this how-to-video for you, featuring one of our favorite cocktails, the Dark and Stormy. The video was part of an assignment in our online how to shoot food videos group that Lenny is leading. We had to shoot a video using one light, and it could not be natural light. The Dark and Stormy seemed like the perfect subject for this challenge.
Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum is perfect for a Dark and Stormy night. Black Spiced is a syrupy blackstrap rum that is luscious and sweet like molasses. Slightly smokey from being aged in charred oak barrels with hints of clove. This rum is great on its own served over ice as well as mixed with a crisp ginger beer to make a Dark and Stormy.
