More commonly known as a Rum and coke but I prefer Cuba Libre. Lime is crucial in this as it lightens and defines the drink.
The origin of this cocktail dates back to 1901 during the Spanish American War. It is believed that one of the soldiers toasted “¡Por Cuba Libre!” in celebration. 1900 was also believed to be the year that Coca-Cola was introduced to Cuba through American troops.
