How do I properly stir the Scuba Libre to ensure the flavors are well integrated?

To properly stir the Scuba Libre, start by adding the cola, tequila, red wine, and white rum into the highball glass filled with ice.

For the Scuba Libre, the recommended garnish would be a lime wedge skewered on top of the glass and a sprig of fresh mint.

Can I substitute the white rum in Scuba Libre with another type of rum?
