cuba libre.

Grandma ALWAYS has a handle of Bacardi Superior on deck because this is our family's drink. Even though we call them rum and cokes, the fact that we use lime really makes this drink a Cuba Libre. I think my grandparents have 1 'rum and coke' a day. Y'know to stay healthy & shit lol.


  • 1-1/2 oz. dark or white rum *We use Bacardi superior.
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Ice
  • Cola *Pepsi is better.


Fill a highball glass with ice. Add the ingredients. Stir and garnish with lime wedge.
EDIT: I realize the recipe doesn't put it in the right order for you. Squeeze the lime and rum in 1st and fill the glass up a little more than half way. Then add the pepsi and put the squeezed lime wedge in.

If you made it right the drink should last you a good 15 min and you should be tipsy by the time you get to the bottom. By the second drink you should be feeling right and by the third you shouldn't make anymore.
