It’s pretty much impossible to name a soft drink that’s more popular than Coca-Cola, and drinking it on its own isn’t the only way to consume it. The real fun starts when you start mixing it up with other beverages to get some amazing cocktails, and here are three of the most popular options.

Cuba Libre

If you’re looking for an easy cocktail that you can mix up even if you’re not a pro, it doesn’t get much easier than Cuba Libre. Also known as Rum and Coke, you can make these cocktails will all sorts of run varieties, but Bacardi is one of the most popular options when it comes to this beverage.

Jack and Coke

The name of this cocktail makes it pretty clear what it’s made from. In addition to Coca-Cola, you’ll also need some Jack Daniel’s whiskey to mix up this popular cocktail, also known as Lemmy, after Motörhead’s late frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

Long Island Ice Tea

One of the most popular cocktails associated with Coca-Cola, the Long Island Ice Tea is a timeless classic. Vodka, tequila, light rum, triple sec, and gin are some of the ingredients being used, while Coca-Cola gives it its amber hue, making it look just like ice tea with a much stronger taste.
