ISO: dark and stormy (or even just ginger beer)
In search of either a bar serving a classic dark and stormy (Gosslings Bermuda Rum and ginger beer) or a place where I can buy the ingredients (ginger beer has been hard to find).
Ideally, a Village or LES bar or a Harlem or UWS bar.
you can get ginger beer at golden krust on 14th street and sometimes gourmet garage has it.
Death & Co. has a cocktail with homemade ginger beer and Gosslings rum not a dark and stormy but they could probably make that too.
Pegu Club makes their own ginger beer, not sure if you can buy it from there. It's a pain to make, and many reputable bars just use the Audrey Saunders/Pegu Club recipe anyway. Their Jamaican firefly is a take on the Dark & Stormy, but I'm sure you could order a classic one there as well.

There are a number of liqueur stores here that carry Barret's Ginger Beer right by the Goslings dark rum. Ask if the can order it for you.
