The Thirst Of The Amazon: CUBA LIBRE

Cubra Libre

By Capt Peacock

Here’s how to make one of my favorites!


One of the most famous cocktails around, known even to non-drinkers. ‘Cuba Libre’ means ‘Free Cuba’ and became popular around the end of the Spanish American War. The mixture is similar to a Rum & Coke, but the addition of fresh lime juice de_nes this version and lightens it up.

INGREDIENTS: 1 2/3 oz rum (50 ml); 3 1/3 oz cola (100 ml); lemon/lime juice (optional).

This will quench your thirst after a hard day of fishing for sure.

I know this because I know Amazônia.
