I agree, the ginger beer is a bit overpowering for my tastes. I can drink the occasional one, but I have to bury the ginger beer with LOTS of rum!
A more refreshing variation is rum and ginger ale. Add a squeeze of lime and lots of ice, and I can drink those all day. Not really a Dark 'n' Stormy, more like "Dark 'n' a Bit Blustery"!
