Cuba Libre (Rum and Coke)
Cocktail Recipe

The Cuba Libre dates back to the Spanish-American war, when a member of the U.S. Signal Corps reportedly caused a sensation by ordering the exotic mixture at a bar in Old Havana. Though coca-cola has changed a lot since then (it used to contain real coca—the source ingredient for cocaine!), the Cuba Libre remains a festive favorite.
