April 8th is National Empanada Day!

Feeling a little “stressed out” from the long, grey winter? Find your smile at Cuba Libre, the best “authentic” Cuban Restaurant and Rum Bar in the Orlando, Florida area. Perfectly located at “Pointe Orlando,” Executive Chef, Jose Gonzalez, invites you to leave your troubles behind while you enjoy fresh, “made from scratch” dishes and the fully stocked Rum Bar, with over 80 different kinds of rum to choose from. “We are sure you will find something that you will like at Cuba Libre… just be sure to try one of our famous Mojitos, we believe you won’t find a better one anywhere!”

What is the secret to making the perfect Mojito? “We press our own sugar cane on site… the sugar extract, known as ‘guarapo’ is so fresh, it beats the processed syrup that other restaurants may use. Actual sugar, fresh from the cane, equals an incredible taste!”
