Havana Cooler

READY IN: 1min
Recipe by NorthwestGal

Havana Cooler is a refreshing and popular rum-based cocktail that originated in Cuba. This version is from the Taste of Cuba website, which states it's from the Cocina Cubana Club. Ginger ale is the traditional mixer used for the Havana Cooler, but you can use Sprite or other lemon-lime carbonated soda in place of the ginger ale.

Great simple and refreshing drink after a rough day. I didn't have any mint so I added lime. Made for ZWT9 and "The Apron String Travelers"
