Rum & Coke Cocktail Recipe

It’s the simplest of two-ingredient cocktails: The recipe is right there in the drink’s name. But there’s more to it than meets the eye. A favorite of many bar pros as well as casual drinkers, this simple drink can be customized to your individual taste in a number of ways. Proportions matter, as does the type of rum used.

There’s really no wrong type of rum to use in a Rum & Coke. White or light rum, dark rum, and even spiced rum all work equally well; it’s up to your personal preferences which style you should go with. You might even try a combination of different types of rum: Using half light and half dark rum will produce a light, bright drink with vanilla and caramel notes on the finish.
