Dark Rum

I have a recipe that calls for dark rum. I've got no dark rum but plenty of light rum. I've heard that a dark rum substitute uses light rum with molasses but I don't know the proportions. Anyone know?

You will not get the flavors right by just mixing light rum with molasses. Its the way that the rum is aged that gives it a darker color.
