The ginger beer commonly used in Dark and Stormies is non-alcoholic. Berritt's G.B. is the most familiar in the Dark and Stormie, and it is non-alcoholic. Yes, ginger beer can be made with residual alcohol -- so it can go both ways.

For drinking straight I like the Barbancourt 15 year, which is sort of funny since I do not like their 4 and 8 year much at all.

Prefer Jerry to Captain, just need to look out for that extra 10 proof.

A buddy of mine drinks Captain Willies Jerry and Coke with a squueze of line and a floater of Malibu. A can drink a few but I do not need to sweeten a rum and coke

Neat: Ron Zecapa Centenario, Pyrate XO, HC 7, Pampero, and on occasion Goslings

Dark and Stormy's preferably with Gosings, but other darks will do.

Mojitos with HC3, Pussers, or any other light you have around

Cuba Libre, hell what difference what kind you use if you put Coke and Lime in it.

As a bit of a cigar affcianado ( See my website ) I've also become a bit of a rumy. Rum is in fact the best drink to accompany a cigar.

Edit: To the neat list I would add the no longer in production Methusalem from Havana Club. Some friends of mine and a Cuban national slipped as many bottles as they could carry out the back of the Soviet Embassy one night in Havana. The rum is a fantastic 15yo, but the story is even better.

JEEEEZZZZZ..........
I would expect you sailors to be a little more "open-minded" when it came to MOUNT GAY............ you feelin' a little insecure about something, are ya?????
Had a few bottles of this stuff, will be buying more....

CAPTAIN MORGAN and Coke or Ginger.........

but we had a friend bring aboard the 7 year old NICARAGUAN RUM FLORA de Cana, and I must admit, I'll be picking up a couple of bottles of that stuff, VERY smooth!

And did I mention CAPTAIN MORGAN ?????? MY FAVORITE!

I love to drink rum, particularly on the sailboat, but I have problems on my daysailer because there is no good way to have the rum, mixers and ice handy. I keep them in a cooler and them make drinks in plastic cups. I have considered building a small contraption to hold the rum and mixers under the foredeck but I think that might be too extreme.

Black, mostly. I usually assume anyone not in BDA and talking about Goslings means Black Seal.
