Old Fashioned Cuba Libre

Old Fashioned Cuba Libre

The Old Fashioned Cuba Libre is the result of a tawdry little affair between a classic Cuba Libre and a much younger mid-century Old Fashioned. Like all good affairs, this one has some nice muddling, a little rum, and a touch of Mexican Coke thrown in for good times.

The Cuba Libre is a bright, delicious island drink with a great origin story that more than likely was completely made up, but still hasn’t been enough to get the Cuba Libre out from under the shadows of its simple-minded cousin the Rum and Coke.

The Cuba Libre gets its bright tropical flavors from fresh squeezed lime juice that is nicely complimented by the Coca-Cola and some good rum.
