Cuba Libre translated Free Cuba, was originated after the Spanish-American War when American group of soldiers fist mixed Coca-Cola, rum and a wedge of lime to toast the freedom of Cuba. Legend has it that American soldiers stationed in Cuba during the Spanish-American War of the late 1800’s were not allowed to have alcoholic beverages while in uniform, and that is how the Cuba Libre was originated. The bartender would pour out some Coca-Cola from the bottle, pour some rum in, and use the lime to disguise the alcohol smell. (Source: Yahoo Answers)
