But what if we told you there’s a way to elevate this classic, infusing it with the rich, bold flavours of coffee and a hint of South African craftsmanship? Enter the Innocent Cold Brew Coffee Rum, a game-changer that takes your Cuba Libre to a whole new level.

The Classic Cuba Libre

Before we delve into the delectable details of our coffee-infused concoction, let’s pay homage to the classic Cuba Libre. This iconic cocktail traces its roots back to the early 20th century, with a story as vibrant as its flavours.

Ingredients for a Classic Cuba Libre:

The process is simple: Fill a highball glass with ice, pour in the rum, squeeze in fresh lime juice, and top it up with cola. Garnish with a lime wedge, and you have the classic Cuba Libre – a refreshing blend of sweetness and citrusy zest.

Introducing Innocent Cold Brew Coffee Rum

Now, let’s take this classic and turn it into something extraordinary. At Innocent Spirits, we’re known for our innovative craft spirits, and our Cold Brew Coffee Rum is a testament to that creativity.

Ingredients for an Innocent Cold Brew Coffee Rum Cuba Libre:

  • 50 ml Innocent Cold Brew Coffee Rum
  • 120 ml cola
  • Fresh lime juice (to taste)
  • Lime wedge for garnish
  • Coffee beans or a sprig of mint for a South African twist
  • Ice cubes

Crafting the Perfect Cold Brew Cuba Libre

  1. Start with Ice: Just like the classic, begin by filling a highball glass with ice cubes. This ensures your drink stays refreshingly cold.
  2. Pour in the Magic: Measure out 50 ml of Innocent Cold Brew Coffee Rum. This is where the magic begins. Our coffee-infused rum brings rich, aromatic coffee notes to the party, elevating the entire experience.
  3. Add a Citrusy Zing: Squeeze in fresh lime juice to taste. The citrusy kick pairs beautifully with the coffee undertones.
