    Yes I´m a psychiatrist, born in La Habana Cuba, living in Caracas for the last 52 years. I´m 70 since lst week.
    Sorry for the mixologist. Presidente, as it was called in Cuba, is exactly what you virtually printed, but... no grenadine in it. My mother, also cuban but not drinking anymore since her death at 90, was a fan of Presidente.
    Kind regards.
