El Presidente

  • Author: Ingrid Visockiene

The El Presidente cocktail is a dignified blend of white rum, dry vermouth, orange curaçao, and a dash of Grenadine. I find it smooth and subtly sweet with a hint of citrus.

A timeless choice born in the 1920s during a time of great creativity in cocktail culture, El Presidente is named in honour of the Cuban presidents of the era.




  1. Prep: Fill a mixing glass with ice cubes.
  2. Combine: Add white rum, dry vermouth, orange curaçao, and a dash of Grenadine, then stir until chilled.
  3. Pour: Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish: An orange twist.
  5. Optional: A pinch of salt


El Presidente cocktail’s popularity soared in the early 20th century, symbolising the luxurious and sophisticated lifestyle of pre-revolutionary Cuba.
