Free Cocktails on demand with #UberLibre

Remember how summer feels? We’re thinking: barbeques, bike rides and walks on the beach. Kickabouts, long afternoons and maybe that island getaway you’ve been browsing when you were supposed to be writing your sales report. London may seem a million miles from paradise but we’ve got a little treat in store that’ll bring a touch of summer right to your doorstep.


Starting the weekend with a Cuban kick, we’ve partnered with BACARDÍ to serve up the one thing we city-dwellers all desire: freedom. Whether you’re stuck at work, got plans with the in-laws, or just having a night-in, hit the BACARDÍ button in the Uber app and we’ll send a Mercedes E-Class and cocktail mixologist to deliver a freshly mixed BACARDÍ Cuba Libre, on the house. We’ll be taking orders from 6pm throughout the evening. Simply enter the code UBERLIBRE into the app and get requesting – whether you’ve clocked off or not!

Cheers Uber! Anything else I need to know?

A little history before you go…

The Cuba Libre originated one hot afternoon in August 1900, when a group of off-duty soldiers of the American Signal Corps gathered for a drink at the American Bar in Havana. One of the group, Mr. Russell, ordered a BACARDÍ with Coca-Cola®, ice and a squeeze of fresh lime. His soldiers tried it, liked it and ordered a round for themselves. Then one of the group suggested they toast “Por Cuba Libre’ – for Cuba’s freedom and so the drink was born.   LIVE PASSIONATELY. DRINK RESPONSIBLY. ©2014.
