Cuban Coolers


The Cuba Libre cocktail came into fashion during the American Intervention (A.K.A. Spanish-American War) of 1898–1900. It is named for the Cuban Liberation Army.

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
2 ounces white rum

Pour lime juice and rum into a tall glass packed with crushed ice. Fill with Coke. Stir well.


A favorite of John F. Kennedy’s, invented in Santiago de Cuba for southern miners who had run out of gin. Still served at Havana’s Restaurante Floridita.

2 ounces Havana Club (white) Rum
¼ ounce Maraschino liqueur
1 ounce fresh lime juice
2/3 ounce sugar syrup

Shake briefly with a glassful of crushed ice, and pour unstrained into a frosted cocktail glass. Serve. For the “Hemingway Daiquiri,” take a triple shot with no sugar and a quick blast in a blender.
