Cuba Libre Cocktail
The Cuba Libre cocktail is a real drink for unforgettable moments with friends.
- A few drops of lemon or lemon juice
- 50 ml of Havana Club Añejo Especial
- 100 ml of Cola
- You will also need a glass of whiskey and fresh ice
Cuba Libre Cocktail Preparation
First, fill the cup with fresh ice.
Then add 50 ml of Havana Club Special rum that ripens in barrels with a touch of vanilla, which gives it a rounder flavor. It is perfect for mixing, since it really complements the other flavors.
Now, refill – with no more than 100 ml of cola soda …. leaving enough room for the garnish, a slice of lemon.
Like the mojito and the Daiquiri, free Cuba shares the mystery of its exact origin. The only thing really true is that this cocktail was savored for the first time in Cuba. Year? 1900. Or maybe before. It is generally said that Cola first arrived in Cuba in 1900, introduced by the American troops. But “Cuba Libre” was the battle cry of the Cuban liberation army during the war of independence that ended in 1878. So, leaving the year aside, who was the first bartender to add the lime?
