The Cuba Libre has its origins in Cuba, where it is a popular drink among locals and tourists alike. The cocktail is said to have been created during the Spanish-American War, when American soldiers mixed Coca-Cola with local Cuban rum to create a refreshing drink.
The name "Cuba Libre" means "Free Cuba" in Spanish, and the cocktail has come to represent the spirit of Cuba and its fight for independence. The drink is often associated with Cuban culture and is a popular choice at Cuban-themed parties and events.Serves 1
