Cuba Libre

Cuba Libre, also known as rum and cola in many places in the world, was invented after the Spanish-American War, when some American soldiers mixed Coca Cola, rum and a slice of lime to toast to the freedom of Cuba.

Ingredients

4 parts white rum
Coca Cola
1 part lime juice (fresh squeezed lime juice)

Preparation method

Put ice cubes in a highball glass. As a garnish, you can put a lime slice in the glass before you add ice cubes.

Add the white rum and the lime juice to the glass, stir and fill with the cola.

Garnish with a slice of lime.

Funny, but true. Your are not allowed to order a Cuba Libre (free Cuba) in Cuba these days. To get this drink while you are in Cuba, you will have to order “a dream”.
