Rum & Coke I do not do.  So much sugar gives me the worst hangovers.  Rum & Diet Coke is a great way to change it up when I'm sick of vodka sodas.  Admittedly, I'm never sick of vodka sodas but sometimes all you've got is a half-empty bottle of Captain Morgan that your favorite friend with benefits left behind the last time he visited, so you have to make do.

Fun fact: the first time I got drunk, I was offered rum & coke but I thought the guy said "Roman Coke" and I literally thought it was called that until college.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

As evidenced by my Favorite Cocktails list, I dig sugar in my booze (even though I really shouldn't!)... But I still don't dig "Roman Cokes", I'm more of a vodka girl :)

By the way, I haven't tried this yet, but I hear that milk thistle is a great hangover helper.

I'll have to try Coke Zero and Bacardi! It sounds pretty good. And as for drinking to get drunk, there's nothing wrong with it now and then! Some people like to have fun on a roller coaster, others like to kick back with friends and get wasted. I don't think either option is terribly great for the body, but hey, we do it anyways!

Someone seems to be implying that drinking just to get drunk ought to be frowned upon... Diet Coke can be successfully added to pretty much any spirit that needs a mixer, but dark rum is my preference. Actually, Coke Zero and Bacardi is really awesome as well.

Roman Coke? That is too funny! I've never had a Diet Coke & Rum, though. Do you have any variations with Diet Coke that you particularly enjoy? I'm dying for more details!

A couple of years ago, I made a New Year's resolution to phase pop out of my diet, and I've held to it for the most part, with the exceptions of some social gatherings.      I do make a little bit of clout for myself, though. I've mentioned in the past that I do drink Red Bull without considering it a form of pop, which is admittedly a real stretch. I also save clout for alcoholic drinks like rum and coke, because let me be honest: Without an occasional shot or two …

I love rum and Coke for its simplicity. I also love it for the fact that I'll eat or drink just about anything that involves rum!

A classic. I've heard it ordered as a "ron, sin fidel". I thought that was clever.

Good enough in a pinch and occasionally great.

The standard drink for Rum Lovers! Add a slice of Lime and call it a Cuba Libre and then even the liquor snobs love it.

Are you addicted to Coke? (Please don't answer if you don't immediately think of the drink!) If you're like me, then you won't find it alarming that I wrote a review of a Rum and Coke at 10 AM. But who could resist? The Rum and Coke highball is one of my favorite drinks. It's easy to make at home, and is a quick and cheap drink at a bar. Plus, it involves my favorite beverage: Coke!    My favorite version is to buy rum and Coca-Cola lime from a grocery store and make it at home. …

About this album


Rum and Coke is a highball often made with Bacardi rum and a cola drink. In the US and Canada, the drink is often made without lime juice, whereas in other countries, the drink includes some sort of sour flavoring and is called a Cuba Libre.

The origins of the Cuba Libre and Rum and Coke drinks are disputed, but one theory explains that the drink is the product of the Spanish American war when Americans brought Coke to Cuba and had the idea to mix it with local rum.

Today, Rum and Coke and the Cuba Libre are among the most popular drinks served at bars worldwide.
