Cuba Libre

This drink gets a bad rap, and it’s understandable. When you order it in a typical bar, you’ll get a sickly-sweet rum and coke with a sad-looking wedge of lime on the side. The real one, though, is miles away. The difference is in the proportions; a real Cubra Libre needs one full part of lime juice to balance the sweetness of a mere 3 parts of cola.

Ingredients

Instructions

Build in the order given in an ice-filled glass. Twist a lime wedge into the drink hard enough to release essential oils, and plunk the wedge right on top of the drink, so your drinker can smell those oils while they sip.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
