This is one of my favorite cocktails ever. It may be because it reminds me of my family back in Spain. We all like rum and Cuba Libres are something we used to drink together watching soccer matches and at family get-togethers.

Some people prefer the finer taste of white rum and others prefer the sweeter taste of dark rum. For me, it depends on what mood I am in. Dark rum gives the cocktail an extra depth and warmth that is nice when I want just one drink at the end of the day. If I am having few drinks after a meal with some friends, I prefer white rum. There is no right or wrong, whatever it takes your fancy.

The name of this drink comes from its ingredients: Rum from Cuba and Coke from the freedom (Libre) in the US. Wherever it comes from, it is very delicious.

Mix all the ingredients in a tall glass with ice and garnish with a lime wedge.

It is often the simple things that are the most satisfying, like this cocktail.

Enjoy it and Happy Friday.
