Vida la Cuba Libre!

At the beginning of this fine Father's Day weekend, I was trying to think of a new drink to make. I stumbled upon this gem--the Cuba Libre. I made it a couple of different ways; each one brings its own pleasure.

Cuba Libre
1 1/2 oz white rum, such as Bacardi Superior
1 lime

Fill a collins or highball glass with ice cubes and squeeze in the juice of one lime. Add rum, and top off with the Coca-cola. Stir gently.

If you're more of a Captain and Coke kind of guy (or girl), you can also try adding a lime to it. It enhances the flavor in an interesting way and makes for a new twist on an old standard.
