Things to know about El Presidente

It is believed that the cocktail was created in honor of Cuban President Mario Garcia Menocal, who was in office from 1913 to 1921. The name "El Presidente" means "The President" in Spanish, and it is said that the drink was one of Menocal's favorites.

During Prohibition in the United States, El Presidente is said to have been a popular drink, as many Americans traveled to Cuba to enjoy the island's nightlife and rum-based cocktails.

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
