History of Cuba Libre
Stunning Cocktail #6: Cuba Libre Sans Alcool with the good taste of rum.
1 half lime, squeezed,
5cl of Sober-Rum,
15 cl of Coca Cola.
Option: A cinnamon stick for a spicy & gourmet touch.
Take a short drink such as a whisky glass or a Tumbler (Mojito glass).
Pour half a squeezed lime directly into the glass, cut the lemon into quarters after squeezing and put the pieces into the glass. Then add 5 cl of Sober-Rum 0,0%.
Fill your glass with ice cubes or crushed ice and fill it to the top (about 15cl) with Coca Cola.
Mix & Garnish with a slice of lemon, it's ready to be enjoyed!
Option: Smoke the cocktail. Take a special board or surface and lightly burn a cinnamon stick so that smoke comes out. Then cover the cinnamon stick with the glass and wait 15 seconds. You have just "smoked" the glass to further enhance the alcohol-free experience.
Why smoke the cocktail glass?
Smoking a cocktail is a very popular (and valuable) technique in mixology. Often based on barks or plants, this technique allows to flavour a cocktail by making it more complex to the nose. The smoky side of rosemary, thyme, cinnamon or sandalwood, to name but a few, will surprise you and create a wow effect with your friends!
Squeezing the lemon rather than pounding?
Squeezing the lemon allows only the good juice of the lemon to be recovered. Squeezing reveals the bitter lemon peel and the essential oil of the lemon. To balance the flavours it is better to squeeze than to squeeze.
History of Cuba Libre
The legendary Cuba Libre cocktail has a simple history that goes back just over a century. Born in 1901 in Cuba from the meeting of Coca Cola brought by American soldiers to the island of Cuba and rum from Havana.
Looking for a way to enjoy local drinks and marry the famous American company Coca Cola, the Cuba Libre cocktail was born between American soldiers and the skills of Havana's bartenders.
Now a must-have cocktail, the Cuba Libre is served all over the world.
