El Presidente recipe from Max Greco, Vasco Bar

There are a number of different recipes out there for the Presidente, but one thing most people will agree on is that this drink hails from Cuba. We didn’t settle on a good spec for this drink until Max Greco of Sydney bar Vasco Bar made it for us in 2015; give his a go, it’s a great use of dry vermouth in a tropical drink. He also used an aged rum, which rounds out the sharp edges of the vermouth.
