Cuban Independence Day Party at The Roosevelt Room

Join  us at The Roosevelt Room for Cuban Independence Day on Sunday, May 20th as we toast to Cuba's Independence Day with $5 Cuba Libres, all day long!

Fun Fact: We can thank Teddy Roosevelt and Coca-Cola for Cuba Libres!

Here is a snippet from Eat Sip Trip about the origin of the cocktail: 

During the same time that the cola sensation was sweeping the U.S., Cuba was fighting Spain for its independence.

Colonel Theodore Roosevelt and his troop of Rough Riders landed ashore in June of 1898. The men brought plenty of Coca-Cola with them to Cuba, as it was known at the time for its health and energy benefits. And the port of Havana was already flowing with cheap rum that couldn’t be sold to Spain and its colonies during the war. It’s out of this abundance of Coke and thirst for rum that the Cuba Libre was born.
