This cocktail became popular around the end of the Spanish American war, the name Cuba Libre translates to "Free Cuba". It's basically a rum and coke with the addition of fresh lime juice. Easy and refreshing.
This cocktail can be traced back to 1935, found in the classic La Floridita Cocktail book. It captures the traditional Caribbean rum and pineapple combination, with the Cuban fascination of Maraschino liqueur during that era.
