Dark 'n' Stormy Recommendations?

Hello! I am trying to find the best Dark 'n' Stormy cocktails in the area - any suggestions?

      I tried getting one at Majestic tonight. They were out of ginger beer - very disappointing. RIS still reigns supreme for me.

      2275 L Street NW, Washington, DC 20037

        Sorry about the rec then. Did you get something else? the mint julep there is great. What is it with ginger beer? I had that same misfortune at Founding Farmers once too.

          I got a "Missionary's Downfall" I think it was called - lotsa mint. It was good, not great. (Especially because I had my heart set on a D&S!)

          Re: ginger beer. They use a certain kind and were sent a different kind, which they sent back.

    2. Annabelle Lee's in Baltimore has the "Into the Maelstrom" a dark and stormy made with a touch of 151. I'm not a cocktail drinker in general but I love this version.

      1. they'll make you a very tasty dark 'n stormy at the passenger (7th st. by the convention center).

        1. Cafe Atlantico and RIS both pour a nice one.

          405 8th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20004

          2275 L Street NW, Washington, DC 20037

          1. Ooh! Thank you all! These look great
