Cuba Libre is a classic and refreshing cocktail that originated in Cuba. It combines rum, cola, and lime juice to create an easy-to-drink beverage with a refreshing taste! When translated from Spanish, this drink means “free Cuba.” The phrase was popularized around the end of Spain's colonial rule and celebrated the nation’s liberation.
1/2 oz. Freshly squeezed lime juice
2 oz. Light rum
4 oz. Cola
Pour all ingredients into a highball glass over ice cubes.
Stir well and garnish with a lime wedge before serving.
This simple mixed drink is similar to a Rum and Coke, but the addition of fresh lime juice gives it an extra unique flavor.
