How to make an El Presidente

El Presidente Cocktail

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)


  1. Add all the ingredients to your cocktail shaker
  2. Shake & double strain into a chilled coupe glass
