If you're searching for a delightful cocktail that includes both dark rum and gin, the options from the list provided are rather limited as most feature rum prominently but do not combine it with gin. However, there are still some wonderful cocktails to choose from, even if they do not fit this exact combination.

One standout option featuring dark rum is the Dark 'n' Stormy. This classic cocktail, originating from Bermuda, combines the robust flavors of dark rum with the spicy kick of ginger beer, enhanced by a squeeze of fresh lime. It offers a bold and intriguing taste profile that rum lovers cherish. With a high rating of 4.7/5, it's a beloved choice among many.

If you wish to explore the gin side, the Gin cocktail is a sophisticated mix that pairs gin with Boker's bitters, sugar syrup, and a touch of orange liqueur, served in a cocktail glass. This elegant drink has a refined flavor profile that balances citrus and herbal notes beautifully, achieving a rating of 4.6/5.

Unfortunately, while none of the listed cocktails simultaneously feature both dark rum and gin, you might consider experimenting at home by combining elements from these suggestions to create your own unique blend. Enjoy your cocktail adventure!
