Cuba Libre

“This drink is supposed to have originated in Cuba in the wake of the Spanish-American war around the turn of the 20th century. It became popular in the States around World War II: With sugar rationed by the government, Coca-Cola was one of the only available mixers. Since 1960’s Cuban embargo, the drink has been steeped in irony: Coca-Cola is unavailable in Cuba and the traditional Cuban rum used in the recipe is unavailable in the States.”



2 ounces dark rum

6 ounces Coca-Cola

Lime wedge


Fill a Collins glass with ice.

Add the rum and Coca-Cola.

Garnish with the lime wedge.

Serve cool.
