This is just a fancy formal name for a rum and coke. There are stories of the Cuba Libre being invented around the same time coke was first invented, but who knows if it’s true or not. I can see that being the case as the Cuba Libre is structurally a Rickey and the Rickey style of cocktails were not invented till the 1880s which is around the same time coke was invented too. One of the thing we do know about its’ invention, was that it was first mixed in Cuba.
