Of course, since we’re obsessed with hemp, we just had to try this Dark ‘n’ Stormy with our citrus-flavored CBD oil. We're happy to report Tribe's CBD Dark 'n' Stormy is a smashing success! Please don't forget to tell us what you think of this CBD cocktail on social media.  

CBD Dark 'n' Stormy Recipe

Whenever people mention the Dark 'n' Stormy, you gotta talk about Goslings Rum. Founded in 1806, Goslings is a well-respected rum company that's based in Bermuda. Interestingly, this company still holds a patent on the Dark 'n' Stormy—hence it's technically "illegal" to use any other brand when making this drink. 

While Goslings Black Seal Rum makes a fantastic Dark 'n’ Stormy, don’t feel bad if you can’t find it in your liquor store. Honestly, any well-aged, dark rum will work fine in this recipe. 

Of course, you must be sure your rum is dark! You can’t make a "Dark ‘n’ Stormy" with white, gold, or even spiced rum. That's just wrong.

•  Fill a highball glass with ice

•  Pour ginger beer and top with rum

•  Add a dropperful of Tribe CBD oil

•  Garnish with a lime wedge

Is ginger beer a tad too spicy for your taste? No worries! Although a traditional Dark 'n' Stormy should have ginger beer, you could swap it out for sweet ginger syrup. However, if you're going to try this sweeter rendition, you only need to pour 1.5 oz ginger syrup and top with seltzer water.

By the way, some Dark 'n' Stormy recipes include about 0.5 oz of fresh-squeezed lime juice. However, since we've included our dropperful of citrus-flavored CBD oil, we don’t feel the lime juice is necessary. Of course, if you like your Dark 'n' Stormy extra tart, there’s nothing wrong with adding extra lime juice.
