I’ve been looking (on and off) for Ginger Beer since last December, after I was introduced to the Dark and Stormy during my visit home at Christmas. By chance I found this one in the small supermarket near my train station.
For a drink with a name like “Diabolo” it’s surprisingly mild – I’ve had own-brand Ginger Beers with more bite from UK supermarkets – but still, it’s way better than the Canada Dry Ginger Ale that you find everywhere here.
(Note: I haven’t tried to make Dark & Stormy with Canada Dry – just whiskey & ginger).
As an added bonus, it contains grapefruit (didn’t see that on the label until I got it home) which I suppose I can accept as a passable alternative to lime juice if it means I don’t have to get annoyed trying to find it in a shop.
