Weirdest Recipe for a Cuba Libra

I asked the bartender at Abstract to make me a Cuba Libra, and she said “Sorry, but I don’t have any bitters.” Taken aback, I asked her what her recipe was. Here it is (I’ve fudged the measurements a little, because she never gave me any). I’m not sure you’ll find it anywhere else, under any other name, but if you find it, drop me a note.

(I’m glad I didn’t ask what kind of glass she served it in.)

A so-called “Cuba Libra”:

  • 1/2oz. rum
  • 1/2oz. gin
  • Coke to fill
  • 1/4oz. bitters
  • 2oz. lime juice
  • Garnish with lime
