Cuba Libre 3
Ingredients: 2 oz. white rum,1 lime(s), Coca-Cola
Squeeze a lime into a Collins glass, add 2 or 3 ice cubes, and pour in the rum (we like the golden type and really like a darker, more flavorful reserva). Drop in one of the spent lime shells and fill with cold Coca-Cola. Stir briefly.

Ingredients: 1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk, 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk, 1 can (15 oz.) coconut cream (such as Coco Lopez or Goya), 3 cups rum (preferably light, but dark rum always works!), 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 2 cinnamon sticks, 1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise (optional)
Combine evaporated milk, condensed milk, and coconut cream in a large blender and blend until well combined. Add the rum, vanilla, and ground cinnamon, and blend in. (If your blender is small, do this in batches and pour into a large bowl as you go.) Pour into a pitcher or glass bottles with sealed lids and drop in the cinnamon sticks and vanilla bean halves. Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until very cold. Serve straight in small glasses garnished or on the rocks in larger ones. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a cinnamon stick. Leftovers will keep tightly sealed in the refrigerator for about one week (shake the jar vigorously each time before serving).
