Perfect Drink® recipe

Cuba Libre

Many myths persist about the creation of the Cuba Libre, but the only certain thing is that it was first drunk in Cuba around 1900, the year Coca Cola came to that Caribbean island. A mixture of light rum, Coca Cola, and lime juice, it is often referred to as simply a "rum and coke" in the US and UK and often has the lime juice omitted.
