What to make with leftover dark rum?

I bought a bottle of Gosling's black seal Bermuda rum to use in an ice cream recipe (rice ice cream with rum-soaked fruits). I will probably make the ice cream again, but even so, there's quite a bit left. I don't usually drink rum, so I don't know what to do with it.
Any suggestions for tasty drinks made wtih dark rum? I don't like sweet drinks. I prefer tart or bitter stuff. Gin & tonics, lemon drops, margaritas, etc.
I've been meaning to make a rum baba someday, maybe you should try that, yo. I just like screaming it: RUM BABAAAAH!
I recently saw the bartender at a local restaurant making a mojito using Meyer's dark rum. I didn't try it, but the idea of using dark rum instead of light was interesting. The 3 people drinking them had at least 2-3, so it must have been pretty good.
Dark rum and spicy ginger ale (like Reed's) is awesome.
OR! Make a lime rickey, fresh lime juice and soda water, maybe a little simple syrup (think TOm Collins porportions).
But I like a classic margarita with dark rum:
2 parts dk rum, 1 part triple sec/grand marnier, 1 part fresh lime. (simple syrup optional).
Of course, there's always lime/rum jello shots.
