Cuba Libre translated means “Free Cuba” and was popularized around the end of the Spanish-American War.

This simple mixed drink is similar to a Rum & Coke, but the addition of fresh lime juice lightens up the drink and defines the Cuba Libre as a separate drink. It's an easy drink to remember and popular enough that it would be good to add it to the drinks to know list.
