What is that a rum and coke or a Cube Libre? What’s the difference you ask? LIME.
Amazingly enough the lime cuts through the sweetness of the coke and enhances the rum. But for a true Cuba Libre use only Barcardi rum.
Here’s the recipe
– 3 parts cola
– 1 part rum (Bacardi Superior or Gold)
– 1 lime wedge
Fill a tall glass with ice, squeeze the lime wedge over the ice, and then add the rum and cola.
Try it I’ll wait.
