Cuba Libre

Rum and Coke

1.25 oz
Also referred to as silver or white, light rums are unaged, aged in steel, or aged in oak and have had their color filtered out, and usually have a sweeter and lighter taste than darker rum varieties. The name refers to these rums lighter or clear color.
3 oz
A sweet carbonated soft drink produced by the Coca-Cola company since the 19th century. Some may consider using Coke as cheap flavor-shortcut for fratboys (Rum and Coke) and others a vital ingredient in a classic cocktail (Cuba Libre).
0.25 oz
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
1 wedge
Small, round, green citrus fruits. Commonly used in many cocktails for its rind or its acidic taste (6% acid total; 4% citric, 2% malic, some succinic acid).

Build all ingredients in a Collins glass filled with ice. Garnish with lime wedge. #build #ontherocks

Accounts of the invention of the Cuba Libre vary. One account claims that the drink (Spanish for Free Cuba) was invented in Havana, Cuba around 1901/1902. -Wiki
