Being Well-Rounded {Cuba Libre}

Hey yall.  I'm still around.  And I have another summer drink for you.

Apparently I'm into lime these days.
Last time it was a Cape Codder with vodka, cranberry juice, and lime juice.
Today it's a Cuba Libre with rum, coke, and lime juice.

But before you go on thinking all I'm doing this summer is sittin' out on the deck drinkin'

(which I may or may not really be doing at the moment...you'll never know for sure)

It's been early to work

and some fishin'

on a branch of Bayou Plaquemine Brulee,
which I conveniently pass on my way home from work.

And more fishin'

down in the marshes south of New Orleans.

Along with that drinkin' out on the deck.

It's good to be a well-rounded person.

Cuba Libre
according to The Husband

equal parts Coke & white rum
Lime juice, to taste (I like a lot)

Mix all of the above.  Pour in a glass.  Add a few ice cubes.  The end.

  3. Yes, I am "third-ing" the beautiful picture comments! Would not mind trying that drink recipe either.. maybe this week end:-) Thank you!

  4. Oh, you have me longing for the long, carefree days of summer and drinks on the deck. It's all coats and gloves, and definitely no time on the deck here!

  5. Sounds like a good summer drink to just sit and lounge around with! Pinned this, thanks for sharing and lovely shots, too. :)

  6. Looks like you're enjoying your summer to the fullest! Those fish are pretty... I don't eat fish, but they sure look pretty all laid out like that! And I know it's fun to relax while you sit and wait to catch them! :)
    Thanks for linking up to DDT! Glad to see you around! I am working on a recipe post today too, so I'll be sure and stop by to add it to your link up on Monday! :D

  7. I kinda like the idea of sitting of the deck with drink in hand! :) I hope you're having a great Summer so far - pinning this yummy drink!

  8. OH! I could go for one of those right now! When my son gets back from offshore I have to send him this. He's the rum drinker in the family.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
    Lifting my glass to you- "santé"

  14. Equal parts rum and coke... that would be a kicker for me. I love lime in my drinks too. I like mint too... very big on mojitos. Haven't had a cuba libre in a long time... thanks for the reminder.
