Political Cocktails - The Perfect Drinks for Election Night

>> Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Well it's that time of the week I enjoy the most, the weekend (or almost). As I'm sure most of you know this Tuesday is a BIG DAY, it's election day of course. Since I'm sure people will be talking about politics all this weekend anyways, what better way to speak your political beliefs than through a couple of cocktails :) This past week, I received some recipes for two martinis that are sure to please no matter who you're voting for!



The first is the McCain-tini



Ingredients






  • 4 Fresh Cherries, muddled



  • 1½ oz. Zodiac Vodka



  • ½ oz. Pomegranate Juice



  • 1 oz. Fresh Sour Mix
Directions:


Muddle Cherries in shaker. Combine remaining ingredients in shaker with ice. vigorously and strain loosely into martini glass. Um, YUM!



Now for the Obama-tini












Ingredients





  • 8 Fresh Blueberries, Muddled


  • 1½ oz. Zodiac Vodka


  • ½ oz. Blue Curacao


  • ½ oz. Fresh Sour Mix

Muddle blueberries in shaker. Combine remaining ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain loosely into martini glass. Garnish and serve.

Think of all you'll say with a martini :)

Don't forget to talk to me about fall!!

Oh and the McCain-tini obviously looks soooooo much better ;)

If you make an Obama-tini you have to share it with everyone around you that doesnt have one...it's part of his "share the wealth" philosophy...
