Making A Cuba Libre is as Easy as 1-2-3
A classic highball known worldwide, the Cuba Libre, is a simple yet delicious drink that dates back to the mid-nineteenth century and continues to be a favorite.
As Tipsy Bartender notes, the similarity between a simple Rum & Coke and the Cuba Libre, lies mainly, in the lime. It can be the addition of a lime wedge, a squeeze of lime, or both. The idea is to lower the sweetness level of the cola.
Below are the ingredients for a proper Cuba. Do note that picking a specific rum brand can also make all the difference. We all have our favorite amirite?
2 oz. (60ml) White Rum
4 oz. (120ml) Cola
1/3 oz. (10ml) Fresh Lime Juice
Grand touch: Top it off with a lime wedge
Now blend and drink responsibly please. Salud!
