The official version of a Cuba Libre is just rum and coke with optional lime. But don’t knock simple. Some of the best cocktail recipes only include two or three ingredients.
When you find two bold, complementary flavors, why complicate things with a lot of other stuff? Plus, it’s easy for any bartender to make.
- 2 ounces of light (white) rum
- The juice of a half-lime (fresh is best)
- Cola (diet works, if you prefer)
