Cuban classic cocktails – El Presedente was created in Club El Chico in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village (Cuba). My favorite version of this cocktail (without lime juice and bitters) was found on Esquire Drink Database (by D. Wondrich).
45 ml white rum
15 ml orange curacao
20 ml dry vermouth
1 dash grenadine
Stir with cracked ice. Strain in cocktail glass and garnish with a twist of orange peel.
Cocktail El Presidente has amazing orange color if it right prepared. I use rum Havana Club Anejo Blanco for excellent results and homemade grenadine for right taste and color.
