How to Make the Best Rum & Coke

An old-school recipe that never gets old. Invented in the 1800s, a rum & coke is a classic, super simple cocktail that never disappoints. For un updated version, we recommend spicing it up a bit with Captain Morgan. But you can’t go wrong with a traditional rum. For additional zest, add a bit of lime juice to make it a Cuba Libre.


  • 2 oz. Captain Morgan
  • 4 oz. Coke
  • Lime wedges or lime juice (optional)

How to make a rum & Coke:

Fill your glass with ice. Add Captain Morgan and top with Coke. Give it a lil’ stir and garnish with a lime wedge if you so please. Add a splash of lime juice if you’re aiming to make a Cuba Libre. 

Do rum & Coke pair well together?

They sure do. It’s been an iconic mixed drink for over 200 years now. People really dig it—even old-timey people. 

What alcohol goes best with Coke?

All of them? Just kidding. Or are we? OK fine, a lot of them. In addition to rum—and Captain Morgan, specifically—whiskey and Coke is another very popular option.
