I have never been able to find this other than getting from reaching a certain requirement after gambling at The Atomic Wrangler. -- 20:03, March 16, 2011 (UTC)Vault999

Cuba LibreEdit

Removed the line equating Rum and Coke to Cuba Libre. Rum and Coke is not an "alternate name" of a Cuba Libre. Although the drinks are incredibly similar, they are not the same; it is misleading to say this and pointless to the article to include it. 20:54, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Bartend sometime, It's the same.

If I am not entirely mistaken, the difference between a rum 'n cola and a cuba libre is that the latter has a slice of lime on the glass. So, practically the same, theoretically not. Many bartenders don't seem to know this kind of pointless details considering many different drinks.

Coming from myself, an experienced bartender- rum and coke is a more casual term. They're often used interchangeably, but a Cuba Libre has a specific ratio of rum and coke; it also has- as mentioned- a lime wedge, some fresh lime juice squeezed into it, and often a few dashes of Angostura bitters.

no rum Edit

theres no rum in new vegas am i right? what do they use?

Wow. Really? Just go with what the devs say. There's rum in this drink. YuriKaslov 02:20, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

No in game rum, plus, no alcohol in the drink(as it doesn't cause addiction), equals, creative labeling by the Garrets to sell drinks. No one would know what rum tasted like, just that it was a form of alcohol. The point of mixed drinks is to mask the taste of raw alcohol. The Garrets may be using that fact to hide that it's not rum in the drink or that there is little to no alcohol in it. --Xclockwatcher 13:49, July 13, 2011 (UTC)

but rum was around less than 100 years prior to new Vegas... [[1]] -- 16:12, October 19, 2014 (UTC)

Availability Edit

After a lot of testing it seems that this consumable is only available after High Times has been completed but before you finalize the arrangement for supplies between James Garret and Julie Farkas. After this The Atomic Wrangler will never stock the item again, so buy it up while it lasts.Kara MacNamara 22:15, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

This would make a lot of sense. Since the drink doesn't cause alcohol addiction, and the Garrets do not have the steady supply of alcohol from the Followers at that point, they may be passing off rum & nuka as alcoholic drink. Once a reliable alcohol supply could be found they would not need to keep selling non-alcoholic or watered down drinks. It's speculation, but logical. Can anyone else confirm the time-frame window? --Xclockwatcher 13:31, July 13, 2011 (UTC)

Come on people. It is alcoholic. They would have put in some other indication if the Garrets were trying to pass it off as rum when it wasn't. Much more likely that the lack of alcohol addiction is an oversight. -- 13:42, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
