Does it get any easier than this? It's rum and a cola beverage with a splash of lime.

My husband has talked about this drink for years since he grew up in St. Croix. I finally tried this and I was surprised how great it is. You could taste all the flavors separately but they blended nicely too. I used Cruzan Estate Diamond Rum and lime from the squeezy bottle. It sounded like a lot of lime juice but was just right after all. I definitely recommend this! Thanks for the taste of the islands. Read More

It's just a rum and coke with lime. Can't really go wrong with that. Read More

New favorite drink. No really. This was awesome! I made mine a little......different with Coke Zero and Captain Morgan spiced rum. Even my husband liked this. The fresh lime juice is key. Don't chinze out and use bottled--it won't be as good trust me. Read More

Pretty good simple drink. I made this with coke but I'm more of a pepsi fan...will be trying that next time. I also like the extra lime kick in there. Read More

Is this just a rum and coke? Yes and there's no problem with that it's still a recipe and deserves to be here. I really support the submitter's inclusion of substantial lime juice. It just isn't the same when you order a double and get some skinny lime wisp floating on the top: it's always going to be a great drink but I feel the lime juice sets off the light sweetness of the rum. This is my absolute FAVORITE coctail with Bacardi white rum and diet Coke made that way it's one of the lowest calorie coctails and most every place can make it for you. Cheers thanks very much for submitting:) Read More

I was introduced to the Cuba Libre many moons ago. My favorite drink. For a true Cuba Libre it must be Bacardi dark rum Cola and a lime wedge. I prefer coke. Read More
