Smoky Cuba Libre

I’m really into my cocktails, especially rum based ones, and have tried one or 2 types of rum in my time, mojitos are my out and out favourite, but a firm second has to be the Cuba Libre.

While on my way back from work last time I spotted the bottles of Bacardi Oakheart in Duty free, Rum, Spice and Smoke….that’ll be me then. It is matured in charred white oak barrels and this gives it a wonderful smoky, spicy, vanilla smoothness. I have to admit they sold me on smoky.

So I did a little experimentation…all in a good cause I must add, and the Smoky Cubra Libre was a real success. Probably the easiest among cocktails, but I make no apologies for this. Simply a generous shot of Bacardi Oakheart, topped up with coke in a HiBall glass with ice, a good squeeze of lime. A lime wedge to garnish, sit back and enjoy!

  1. Very nice sounding. I’m in to my cocktails myself with Mojitos being my favourite. There is a Cocktail Bar in North Hill Plymouth that I have yet to taste a better one. I must try a Cuba Libre though!

    • Another mojito fan, I’m just putting together a post on mojitos, so hope you’ll enjoy it. Cuba Libre is a nice easy one. Funny you saying about north hill, I used to live there, 20 years ago, no cocktail bars then though that I can remember

  2. I just saw the Oakheart the other day but didn’t buy it. My husband and I both love rum…Bacardi Limon and Bacardi 8. I won’t pass it up next time.
