The Baker “Improved” Libre
First and foremost, this is a sweetish drink so make it very cold or not at all. Into a 14-ounce thin crystal glass pour two jiggers of Bacardi Carta de Oro or some other good grade of Gold Label light rum; add the juice of 1 small green lime or 1/2 small lemon, and let the squeezed dry hulls fall into the glass. Muddle for a moment to get the aromatic oil up over the inner surfaces of the glass. Add half a glass of fine ice and fill with chilled Coca-Cola. Stir once and consume.
