Rum recipe: Captain Blood

Variation on the classic Dark 'n' Stormy.  Credit goes to the inimitable Mike and Kat of the Driftwood Room at the Hotel deLuxe for introducing me (us) to the magical fourth ingredient.  But I thought this one up as Zanne and I were at the bar and named it for the dashing Mr. Flynn's (and Mr. Sabatini's) classic character.
--Gosling's Black Seal Rum
--ginger beer/ale
--slice of lime (not optional)
--Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur

"We, the undersigned, are men without a country. Outlaws in our own land and homeless outcasts in any other. Desperate men, we go to seek a desperate fortune. Therefore, we do, here and now, band ourselves into a brotherhood of buccaneers... to practice the trade of piracy on the high seas. We, the hunted, will now hunt." --Captain Blood
