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.
The perfect drink to cool you down, this traditional Cuban highball drink has easily become one of the most popular cocktails around. Fresh muddled mint and lime make up the classic version but there seem to be more variations of Mojitos out there nowadays than we can count. Some prefer to strain this cocktail before serving but tradition says leave the mint leaves right where they are.
The El Diablo combines the sweetness of blackberry from the cassis with the bold flavor of tequila. This cocktail is becoming more popular but remains still somewhat forgotten. We say, don't put this baby in the corner.
