    I'll describe a recipe variant. You tell me what that variant is called. Each participant gets one guess.

    Ready?

    This variation of the Cuba Libre uses rum from a popular tropical drupe, and a berry-inspired sodapop. Its name derives from the beachy smell it inspires.

    thranax has guessed this correctly: Coppertone

          It said 'Compared to a normal Cuba Libre, it uses a higher proof rum, such as Bacardi '

    Coppertone

    Malibu Rum + Cherry Coke gives drink smells like suntan lotion and the name is an allusion to that.

            You can write up to five; winning the Daily Puzzle just gives you 3 extra entries. So if you wrote 3 Hubs, you'd have 6 entries into the drawing, and if you wrote 4, you'd have 7. smile

              I feel dumb, I get it lol.

              @Twenty One Days

              If it is made correctly it does resemble suntan lotion!
