Give this Cuban-born cocktail a chance - we promise you won't be disappointed...

El Presidente cocktail
The 'El Presidente' Cuban cocktail trickled into American bars during the dangerous days of Prohibition and it's stuck around ever since.

Boosted with Havana Club rum and a dash of orange, we reckon this exotic tipple will become your new favourite drink. Here's how to get it right...

The 'El Presidente'


25ml of Curacao
50ml of Havana Club Seleccion des Maestro
25ml of Dry Vermouth
Twist of Orange Peel


Mix all the ingredients with ice in a shaker and do your best 'I'm the new barman at TGI Firdays impression'.

Strain and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.

Garnish with a twist of orange and serve.
