Kick The Weekend Off With A BACARDÍ ‘El Presidente’ Cocktail

hqdefaultFriday is the perfect day for a cocktail! As the weekend gets ready to kick into high gear, folks like to start it off with a cocktail or two. BACARDÍ is definitely one of the frontrunners in cocktail creations. This ‘El Presidente’ recipe is definitely one for the books.

The ‘El Presidente’ cocktail is a rebirth of a Prohibition-era classic. With ‘Boardwalk Empire’ kicking back into high gear, BACARDÍ created an ode to a very traditional and old school cocktail. This recipe produces a drink that is smooth and straight to the point. Garnished with a cherry, this is the perfect way to pay homage to the weekend! If the Boardwalk Empire series is a favorite then this cocktail is definitely a ‘must-try’.
