Named in celebration of Cuba’s independence, Cuba Libre is a stunning, superb cocktail composed of two fond favourites— rum and coca cola. Now jog your memory and tell us: when did Cuba gain freedom, and from whom?
Here’s how you make it:
Lots of ice
1 part rum
2 parts coke
Toss them into a highball glass, in that order. Está!
Know Before You Go:
“Libre” is pronounced Lee-Bray
Light rum is preferable in cocktails because it mixes better than dark
