Technically, the Cuba Libre is a rum and Coke. Not to be confused with what comes out of a small town in northern Queensland in truck loads, but instead a refined and exotic Cuban celebration. Use high-quality white rum, a twist of fresh lime and a sturdy highball glass to make a proper Cuba Libre.
Another variation of the Cuba Libre is the Cuban Missile Crisis. Compared to a normal Cuba Libre, it uses a higher proof rum, such as Bacardi 151 (75.5% ABV).
