Election Recipe Night!

Waiting for election returns can make for a pretty long night. If you’re in it for the long haul, you may as well enjoy yourself! Whip up a nice beverage and sip one of these. It may just make the results a little easier to swallow. Whether you’re celebrating victory or drowning defeat, we’ve created a few fun cocktails this Election Day.

Hailing from Hawaii, home of macadamia and pineapple, Barack Obama’s birthplace inspired this drink. It will put you in a celebratory mood, no matter which row of the ballot you’re on.

Obama Mama
1 oz. dark rum
1 oz. coconut rum
1 oz. macadamia nut liqueur
½ oz espresso vodka
½ oz. lemon juice
Shake with ice and serve in a tall glass.

Now, we know Mitt Romney abstains from alcohol, but there’s no reason you can’t raise a glass and indulge in a Mitt Rumney cocktail. If you’re a teetotaler too, just leave out the booze and enjoy your cranberry juice cocktail. At least it comes from New England.

Mitt Rumney
1 oz. spiced rum
1 oz. light rum
1 oz. Whipped vodka
2 oz. cranberry juice
Splash of lemon
Stir and serve over ice in a rocks glass.

Red and blue are slowly filling the map as commentators wait for results, especially from the swing states. Pour yourself another one and get comfortable. It's just too close to call.

Swing State
1 oz. apple pie liqueur
1 oz. Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey
Gently shake or stir with ice and strain into a tall shooter. Sip or slam.

We’re not sure what to call this one. We had a name, and then changed it. We were influenced by our constituents to change the name yet again, so we call it…

The Waffle
1 oz. vanilla vodka
1 oz. espresso vodka
1 oz. Sapling maple liqueur
3 oz. orange juice
Shake and pour over ice in any clean glass you have handy.

We don’t recommend having all of them tonight, unless you’re staying put. No matter what the outcome, we hope we've made Decision 2012 just a little easier to swallow.

Cheers & Bottoms Up!
Kim & Pam
