The Great Debate

Attention Freedom Fighters:
The Cuba Libre Jelly Shot

Cuba Libre?   One of us here at the Test Kitchen, and I will not say who, had never heard of this rather exotic sounding cocktail, and seached for the recipe only to find that . . . well, it was determined that a Cuba Libre is a rum and Coke with lime.

Whichever side you fall on in the great debate, clearly rum, Coke and the optional lime makes an exceptionally refreshing jelly shot.    The perfect accompaniment the next time you are hatching revoluntionary plans.
