The 'Dark n' Stormy' is a popular rum based drink in Bermuda. It is especially appreciated on the north end of the island around St. Georges. It is the first cocktail to be registered internationally with a trade mark. It is not uncommon for bar owners to call their cocktails 'Dark and Stormy' so as to modify or alter the existing cocktail without breaching the rights of the trade mark.
