Ritual Non-Alcoholic Rum Dark and Stormy Cocktail Recipe
In the Disney classic Alice in Wonderland, there’s an iconic song sung by the dodo bird that starts with the line, “Oh, a sailor's life is a life for me.”
While we can’t speak for what it was really like to be a sailor back in the day, the further we dive into classic cocktail recipes, the more we learn that sailors are responsible for some of the most iconic drinks in history. And today we’re going to show you an alcohol-free take on one of these sailor classics: the Dark and Stormy.
Like most good sailor stories, the origin of the Dark and Stormy is a little hazy. But rumor has it that once sailors in the Caribbean took to drinking local rum, it was only a matter of time before they realized it was the perfect seafaring drink when mixed with the stomach-settling properties of ginger. Today, you can find Dark ‘n Stormy cocktails served in bars and restaurants around the globe to sailors and land-lovers alike!
For our Non-Alcoholic Rum Dark and Stormy Cocktail Recipe, we’re using one of our favorite alcohol-free rums, Ritual Zero Proof Rum Alternative. The newest in the already impressive lineup of Ritual Zero Proof Non-Alcoholic Spirits, Ritual Zero Proof Rum Alternative is a delicious blend of warm vanilla, toasted spice, and velvety decadence, but without the booze or the calories that come with it (a typical Dark and Stormy has over 200 calories...ours boasts just 60).
