The Cuba Libre is a classic and refreshing cocktail that combines the flavors of rum, cola, and lime. It’s simple to make and perfect for a warm day or a casual gathering. Here’s the recipe for a Cuba Libre:

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz (60 ml) light or dark rum (preferably Cuban rum, if available)
  • 4-6 oz (120-180 ml) cola (Coca-Cola or a similar cola brand)
  • 1/2 lime
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime wedge for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Fill a highball or Collins glass with ice cubes.
  2. Pour the rum over the ice.
  3. Squeeze the juice from half a lime into the glass. You can adjust the amount of lime juice according to your taste preferences.

  5. Gently stir the cocktail to mix the ingredients.
  6. Garnish with a lime wedge on the rim of the glass or float it on top of the drink.
