Cuba Libre

2 oz. light rum

Add the rum and juice of the lime into a cocktail shaker over ice; shake well and strain into a Collins glass; top with cola and give a slight stir. Serve with a lime wedge on the rim of the glass.

*Johnna’s tip: We are curious. Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar is coming to the District this Spring and we are curious about everything: whether the mojitos will make the cut or not?? will there be free salsa lessons?? and of course, will we like the food??? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see…for now, we’ll practice our dance moves…

*Johnna’s tip, tip: FYI Cuba Libre is “Free Cuba” in Spanish.
