Let’s face it, the Cuba Libre cocktail is just a fancy way of saying rum and coke [with a twist of lime]. But whether you drink it because you like the idea of drinking to “free Cuba”, or because you’ve always liked rum and coke (hold back on the name calling please), or because you really just like saying “Cuba” like you know it well and the reverberation in your head as you roll the “re” at the end to extremes; I’d have to say that it’s the twist of lime that really does it for me.
30 ml white rum
100 ml cola
½ lime, cut a slice to garnish the glass and juice the rest
Add the above to a tumbler filled with lots of ice.
