Rum and Coke is one cocktail that is easy to make and deliciously satisfying. It is obvious from the name that it is an easy-to-make, two-ingredient drink. However, the simplest things normally deserve a littl ebit more attention than you would expect.

Rum is also one of the most affordable spirits, and that makes this one of the cheapest cocktails to make.

Basically, Rum and Coke is as simple as a pour of your favorite rum in a tall glass filled with ice. It is finished off with a cola (Coca-Cola is the soda of choice) and a lime wedge. However, many drinkers say it is far too easy to get a bad Rum and Coke.
