The LA PRESIDENTE, A Female Version of the El Presidente Cocktail




The El Presidente was created during the American Prohibition at the Jockey Club in Havana, Cuba by American bartender Eddie Woelke who named it after then Cuban President Gerardo Machado. There's a great article on it by Wayne Curtis with more details here.

I think it is a perfect cocktail for the upcoming election year, but with one slight change ... in name only:
