No cocktail should be trademarked in my opinion (The Painkiller is another in that category) . . .
    I do make D&S's at home with Gosling's as my wife is anal retentive and HATES it when go off a recipe. However, depending on my mood, I'll use other dark rums (an elder Barbancourt works well) or a even a rhum agricole. For ginger beer, Fentiman's or Crabbies works for me although Reed's is fine if I can't find the others. But unless asked, I don't tell her what's in them. I just soak up the oooohs and aaaahs.

    Re: Rum Forum

    Wanted to make a Dark 'N Stormy yesterday, but had no Ginger Beer. All I had was a bottle of Canada Dry Ginger Ale (which I find to have very little Ginger about it). Added a good splash of AITA Snap, which got the job done. Not bad at all.

    Be sure to give the glass a nose the morning after.

    Had a pour of this last night and the residual aroma was heavenly this morning nosing as the coffee brewed.

    Even better, put a mini pour in your morning coffee, for even more insight!
