This classic Cuban cocktail contains only a few simple ingredients, but is sure to pack a fresh and flavorful punch. The smooth white rum combined with fragrant mint, tangy lime and hint of sweet simple syrup makes this drink light, bubbly and perfectly refreshing for summertime.
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.
Large batch punches are ideal for entertaining. You can prep most ingredients ahead of time and then mix right before company arrives. Letting guests serve themselves means you have more time to mingle.
