Cuba Libre | Cocktail Party

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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
