Brian Klemm makes a simple, yet magnificent cocktail right here
A cocktail with a simple recipe, but an epic history. Cuba libre literally means, free Cuba which was a slogan leading into the Spanish/American war as they struggled to gain their independence. During that time, this cocktail spread like wildfire.
- 1oz lime juice
- 3/4oz cola reduction with a hint of vanilla
- 2oz SelvaRey White
Get out your shaker set and throw in your lime juice, cola reduction and SelvaRey White.
Top tip: When you’re making your cola reduction, make sure that your cola has real sugar in it, so it boils down to a syrup-like texture and results in a much better cocktail overall.
Add ice and shake quickly. Grab your favorite rocks glass and place a single huge chunk of ice. Single strain over the ice, and add a wedge of lime. And serve.
