Cocktails and Highballs at Henry's Tavern, Sheridan in Uptown

For those of you who might be in the mood for a highball--who cares if it's only Wednesday?--here's a recipe from

Cuba Libre

In the 1930s, John O'Hara used to mention these in his novels. I'm sure that Ernest Hemingway drank a million of them! RC Cola works much better than Coke for this one. This is listed under "cocktails" but it's really a highball, only using one liquor. Enjoy!

8 ounces cola, Royal Crown (RC)
6 ice cubes
2 1/2 ounces light rum
2 lime wedges

In a frosted 12-ounce tumbler, pour in the ice cubes. Squeeze the lime wedges over the ice and drop them into the tumbler. Pour the rum over the ice. Slowly pour the RC Cola over the ice and stir.

So what's at the location these days?

That would be Nick's Uptown!
