Cuba Libre

This is our drink. Maybe it has to do with the fact that we met in Cuba. Or that when we met, we were drinking this or weren't we ? It's all a little fuzzy. But it's our favorite aperitif before dinner.

Pour one part rum & two parts coke into a glass & top it up with ice. Stir well then squeeze lemon or lime juice over & garnish with a slice of lemon or lime. It's served here with cut up pieces of the ham & olive cake that I made the other day.

The next feature would be another Cuban favorite. Do you know what it is ? Leave in the comments if you do.

This is my Hubs' all time favourite but with him, it's 2 parts rum to 1 part coke. LOL. There is always a bottle of Bacardi Reserva in our cellar at home. Right now, Hubs is drinking Bacardi Black, which he says it's really good too.

Ooooh! Let me guess! Your next feature is the Mojito! Qui?

Alright this is way too easy. Yup it's the Mojito.

Dutchess - hehe actually we do it 1 to 1 but for the blog, I gave it the regular portion. Don't want everybody to think we're alcoholics. I've never tried Bacardi Black - will look out for it next.

Meng - of course you know the answer to this
