Por Cuba Libre: Free Cuba or a Great Cocktail?
- 2 oz. of Blanco or Gold Rum
- Juice of 1/2 Lime
- 4 oz. Coca-Cola
If you talk to the Bacardi folks, it was originated with "Bacardi Gold Rum", if you talk to the Havana Club , it was made with "Havana Club Light Rum", thus the mystery continues. Like all good cocktails everyone wants to be the originator, and as a result the story becomes so murky that the truth will probably will never be known.
Modern Day "Rum and Coke"
- 2 oz Light Rum
- 2 oz Cola
- 2 drops of Bitters (Optional)
- Lime Wedge
No matter what you call it or how you mix it, this is one of the true classic cocktails and a great "go to" cocktail for anyone wanting a refreshing drink. ;o)
