Santa Teresa 1796 Cuba Libre

On this episode of The Mix, host Julie Smith reviews the history of the popular rum and Cola drink before host Phil Armijo digs in with an easy-to-make Cuba Libre recipe for your home. Plus, you’ll find out the answer to the question “What’s the difference between a Cuba Libre and a rum and Coke?”
