Dark 'n' Stormy

One of the byproducts of producing sugar is molasses. This molasses, once fermented, is distilled into rum, which is why some of the early English-style rums were very molasses-heavy. Gosling's comes from that blackstrap molasses tradition and actually has the trademark for the Dark 'n' Stormy. But for this drink, you can use any sort of dark, demerara-style rum.
