El Presidente, another classic where there are as many different proportions as recipes. Old, yes, originally described in 1919 and built on rum, curaçao and vermouth. Suitable for a Friday evening cocktail unwinding in front of the fire place as autumn is here. The colour is not as red as other recipes as we used natural grenadine without coloring. It ended up a little too sweet so next time we’ll do a little less  curaçao.
