Captain Morgan's Cuba Libre
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.
As the story goes the Rum Runner was invented at a popular bar in the Florida Keys in the 1950s. The bartender had some extra inventory lying around and wanted to make room for new bottles on his shelves. He mixed them all together and the drink was born.
