As the go-to drink for sailors up and down the coast of New England, a dark and stormy is the ultimate beverage to sip seaside. So, there’s no better place to enjoy one than in Newport, where plenty of skilled sailors come to unwind.

During sailing season, you can take advantage of the Attwater’s “Dark & Stormy, Bright & Sunny” package. When booked now through September 15, the vibrant, nautical-inspired boutique hotel will welcome you with dark and stormy cocktails for two at The Black Pearl, a restaurant on Newport’s Bannister’s Wharf.

A Dark & Stormy, Bright & Sunny stay also includes a two-hour sail for two with 12 Meter Charters, plus the chance to sail on a yacht that’s competed in the America’s Cup. To top it off, the Attwater will pack you up for the beach with a picnic kit, including a few beach towels, snacks and drinks for two, and a J. Crew beach bag to keep.
