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.

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.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
