Some smart Venezuelan ordered his Cuba Libre with a little gin, Angostura and less coke.
Now it is a grown out cocktail.
Cuba Libre Preparado
- 1.5oz Aged Rum
- 0.5oz Gin
- 0.75oz lime juice
- 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Shake, strain into ice filled Collins glass, top with 3oz Coca-Cola.
The recipe I found required White Rum, but I really don’t like mixing “white” spirits with Coke, it just doesn’t taste right.
This is a really great twist on a simple highball, and is really good.
I put a drop of Orange Bitters in it just to bring a little extra citrus.
