Cuba Libre

  • 2 oz White Rum
  • 1/2 oz Lime Juice
  • Top with Cola

Shake all the ingredients except the cola with ice then strain into a tall glass (highball) over ice. Top with the cola.

A free bottle of Coke arrived with a delivery of takeaway kebabs last night. I would rather they sent ice cream, or extra onion rings, or cheesecake because I’m not fond of cola. But there’s the bottle looking at me from the worktop, and me feeling lazy and full and sluggish.

It sounds so simple, but it surprised me how just adding the rum and lime changes the Coke. It was perfectly drinkable, and if I get another free bottle of Coke I might make it again.
