Happy Hour: El Presidente

While there are a lot of red, white, and blue drinks to celebrate the 4th of July with, there's really only one for President's Day: El Presidente.

Okay, so it's actually named after the General Carmen Menocal, former president of Cuba, and doesn't have much to do with US culture, but I think the namesake is still rather fun. Plus, doesn't the mix of white rum, orange curacao, French vermouth, and grenadine sound delicious?

To get the recipe and enjoy en El Presidente on President's Day,

El Presidente
From Esquire

1 1/2 ounces white rum
1/2 ounce orange curacao
3/4 ounce French vermouth
1 dash grenadine

  1. Stir ingredients well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. It should pour a delightfully clear, deep orange color. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.

I'd try it. I'm not a huge rum fan, but this could be good.

Not so much for orange flavored drinks, but I could definitely hold it, if it matched my outfit. :D
