Created in cube in the early 1900’s the Rum and Coke has quickly become a bar staple thanks to its refreshing simplicity.
Coca-Cola had become a common mixer after it began bottling in 1886, and once it began exporting in 1900, it quickly became a world-wide favorite.
While there is some debate about the origin of the Rum & Coke, it’s clear that it was first mixed in Cuba and quickly spread. During prohibition Coca-Cola was a particular favorite as it helped disguise the taste of the poorly made, hard to get rums that drinkers were stuck with. While it’s not a complicated drink, it’s a bar staple and still allows for variation. Try subbing out the classic Coke for a local cola!
