ELECTION NIGHT -

Wondering what to drink tonight to celebrate or drown your sorrows? An El Presidente cocktail, of course! "The history of this drink dates back to heyday of Old Havana when Americans under Prohibition went in search of rum and some fun in the sun. A jaunt down to Cuba delivered a dose of both. The name itself and the fact that it's delicious, makes it ideal for any election night party, or a simple toast to your candidate of choice." [theKitchn]
