Cuba Libre

¡Viva la Revolución!

Everyone has probably had a Cuba Libre but chances are they don’t know it.  According to Bacardi it is the worlds second most popular drink.  If it was good enough for Teddy Roosevelt then it is certainly good enough for us.  A properly made Cuba Libre is better than the bowling alley rum & coke you always regret ordering.  I like using Mexican Coke and a spiced rum but really any cola and rum will work.


  •  2 oz rum
  • 1 cola beverage
  • 1 lime wedge
  • Ice



Before you mix your drink squeeze a little lime into your highball glass then give the lime  a very gentle muddling in the glass.  Take the lime out and shake the glass a bit to coat it with the lime juice.  Add ice to your glass then pour the rum over it and top it off with your cola.  Garnish with your abused lime wedge. Refreshing!
