This bright red vintage tee celebrates one of the most popular cocktail combinations of all time, Bacardi Rum and Coca-Cola. Rum and Coke is a simple and easy to make cocktail consisting of just those two ingredients, typically served in a highball glass and sometimes garnished with lime. The drink was first conceived in Cuba in the early 1900s, and its popularity surged after bottled Coca-Cola began being imported from the US to Cuba.

Fausto Rodriguez, who was a Bacardi Rum advertising executive, claimed to have been present when the drink was first created. Rodriguez produced a notarized affidavit, claiming that he had been a teenager working for the US Army Signal Corps in Havana, when he saw a local request the drink and subsequently attract the attention of some American soldiers who ordered a round for themselves. Bacardi later published this affidavit in a 1966 advertisement in Life magazine.

Fits like a modern unisex adult small.
