  • Ginger Beer –5 ounces of ginger beer (enough to top off the glass).
  • Lime Wheel (optional) – 1 lime wheel for garnish, if desired.


This drink is a snap to make! The only thing you’re going to need is your highball glass!

  1. To begin, fill a tall glass with ice and then add 2 ounces of Gosling’s Black Seal rum and ½ ounce of lime juice.
  2. Top off.Next, top off the glass with about 5 ounces of ginger beer.
  3. Finally, garnish the drink with a lime wheel and enjoy while cold.


Cocktails are best enjoyed right after making and do not work as a make-ahead drink because the soda will go flat.
