A million and one different recipes exist for the classic El Presidente cocktail. Many omit the grenadine but if you use real grenadine then it is a welcomed addition. Second time round, I’d lower the vermouth and increase the sugar content with more orange liqueur and consider leaving the grenadine out.
- 45mL White Rum
- 45mL Dry Vermouth
- 5mL Cointreau
- 2.5mL Grenadine (homemade preferred)
- Add all the ingredients to your cocktail shaker
- Shake & double strain into a chilled coupe glass
