Black Presidente


To continue using my dear Blackstrap rum I was thinking about some options or twists where I could use this kind of rum.

One of my favorites rum cocktails of all times is El Presidente, but if I change the rum of this, the drink flavour changes totally and…if I use the Blackstrap rum it will change not only the flavor, also the color of the drink.

I took some time to think about it, and if in politics the USA now have a black president why we couldn’t have a Black Presidente in cocktails?

As in politics some people would love it and some would hate it…

After that little joke, which I hope that no offended anyone, I decided to change a bit the ingredients of my El Presidente twist.

Black Presidente
  • 6cl Cruzan Blackstrap Rum
  • 2cl Red Vermouth
  • 1cl Falernum
  • 1 dash Dale Degroff's Pimento Aromatic Bitters
  1. Add all the ingredients in the shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake it.
  3. Serve double strained in a cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish with a speared Marraschino Cherry.
