A Lesser Known Cuban Cocktail - Try El Presidente. from Tribe CBD

During the dry days of Prohibition, many Americans “humidify” in heavenly Havana. One of the many cocktail bartenders who were invented during this period was called “El Presidente”. While many people have forgotten about this Cuban classic, it makes a nice libation for rum connoisseurs looking for some extra fun.

While we’re not sure how popular CBD is in Cuba, we are confident that our citrus-flavored CBD oil will add some “tong” to this classic cocktail. The all-natural orange extract in Tribe’s CBD oil helps bring out the flavors of Curacao in this delicious drink.

CBD The presidential recipe

Since El Presidente is from Cuba, it makes sense that most recipes call for Cuban rum. However, if you are not a cocktail connoisseur, you might be wondering if there is a huge difference between Caribbean rums? What makes Cuban rum different from the competition?

Well, if you ask cocktail enthusiasts, Cuban rum brands tend to be the “lightest” brands in the Caribbean. This may have to do with the intensive cooking, aging, and cleaning procedures Cuban manufacturers must follow.

In contrast, Jamaican rum has a reputation for being “stinky” – in a positive sense! These funky flavors come from a unique fermentation process. So if you’re looking for an exotic taste explosion, Jamaican rum might be the way to go.

Finally, we turn to the tiny island of Barbados. Customers often claim that the rums on this remarkable island have a sweet taste profile reminiscent of caramel. Interestingly, rum brands in Barbados often have higher sugar content than spirits on other islands.

While sticking to Cuban rum to make an “authentic El Presidente,” don’t let that stop you from experimenting with the other rums in your liquor store.

  • 1 ½ oz old rum
  • ¾ ounces of dry vermouth
  • ¼ oz orange curacao
  • ½ teaspoon of grenadine
  • ½ drop of Tribe CBD oil (citrus)
  • Orange peel


  • Put the rum, vermouth, curacao and grenadine in a mixing glass
  • Add ice and stir until well chilled
  • Strain into a chilled martini glass
  • Garnish with Tribe CBD oil and an orange peel

When opening a vermouth bottle, remember to put the lid on and put it in the refrigerator. Unfortunately, wormwood has a relatively short shelf life, especially if you leave it on the counter. To get the most out of the product, keep it in the refrigerator immediately after opening it.

In most cases, wormwood only lasts about a month. While this drink could still be “usable” for a few months, it is getting “flatter” from week to week. Make sure your vermouth takes a good ol ‘odor test before pouring it into future recipes.

For your information: There are tons of CBD cocktails on the Tribe CBD blog in which you can really use this vermouth. Check out all of our favorite posts like CBD Manhattan and CBD Martini.

Could CBD Turn You Off These Cuban Cigars? – New Science About CBD For Nicotine

It’s no secret that Cubans take great pride in the craft of cigar rolling. However, we now know that nicotine can have detrimental health effects over time. Fortunately, new research suggests that CBD can help fight nicotine addiction. A fascinating study from University College London showed that CBD was better at reducing nicotine cravings than a placebo.

While these results are significant, please keep in mind that the FDA has not yet made any definitive statements about CBD. None of this information is intended to treat, diagnose, or cure any disease. If you are interested in including CBD oil in your treatment regimen, we recommend speaking to a certified health care professional.
