Mad Skills No. 2
A delightful variation on the Cuba Libre. Note I said "delightful," so this libre does NOT mean "bomb and occupy."
1/4 tsp finely minced fresh ginger
1/2 tsp chopped fresh mint leaves
2 tsp fresh lime juice
3-4 drops vanilla
2 oz rum
4 oz Coca Cola (mexican variety in glass, if available)
Muddle the ginger, mint, lime juice, and vanilla in the bottom of a highball glass.
Fill with ice and add rum and cola. Stir gently. Enjoy.
Muddling: mashing the ingredents to release oils and flavors.
