The El Presidente is a classic rum cocktail traditionally made with Bacardi. After prohibition, the rum producer was able to import their product tariff free from the newly established distillery in Puerto Rico. This made the brand and rum cocktails a low cost favorite of lounge across the country. The drink itself is slightly sweet and dry, yet balanced. It has a beautiful color and should be stirred to ensure clarity.
