Cuba Libre

Cuba Libre or Rum and Coke, whatever you like to call it, is refreshing. First off, you need to get some Coca-Cola from Mexico. Its distinct taste we remember from our childhood is a must in this drink. And of course, please always use fresh lime juice. The final choice is the rum. I think white rum is the best choice here, but there is still a choice. Sweet or dry. Appleton White Rum from Jamaica is smooth with notes of vanilla, but not too sweet. This rum makes for a very mellow rum and coke. Flor de Cana Extra Dry is just that, and it plays well with the lime juice to make a lighter tasting rum and coke. Whatever your preference, this is a classic cocktail that has stood the test of time.
