This week we decided it was time to find a rum based cocktail. We found this recipe for the El Presidente cocktail on the Bacardi Rum website.
While doing some research on the El Presidente we discovered several variations – some included pomegrante juice, pineapple juice or grenadine but since we were planning to use Bacardi Gold rum we figured we’d go with the Bacardi version of El President. It’s a simple cocktail with a gorgeous amber colour and just a hint of vanilla from the Bacardi Gold.
Bacardi Gold El Presidente
2 parts Bacardi Gold rum
1 part dry Vermouth
garnish with a cherry
If you use Bacardi white rum in place of the Gold and garnish with an olive instead of the cherry you’ll have a Bacardi Rum Martini according to the Bacardi site. Bottoms up!
