Time to political party


Consult your cabinet. If you have champagne and limoncello, you’ve got what it takes to add some hope and change to your Election Night cocktail.

Simply drop a shot of limoncello into a glass of lemon-infused champagne if you want to be liberal with your libation.

No Democratic election party is complete without the O-bomb-a, a drink that is delicate and refreshing whether you chug or sip.

Ingredients: 1 bottle of inexpensive champagne, 1 lemon & 1 shot of limoncello

1. Fill a glass with champagne and add a few lemon wedges to it.

2. After a few minutes, remove the lemon with a spoon and have your guests drop in a shot of limoncello before chugging. Since the drink will be chugged, garnishes would simply get in the way.

Mint Rumney

Mitt Romney may be a Mormon, but his supporters might wish to indulge on Election Night.

Using creamy coconut milk as a base, sweeten your “Mint Rumney” with mint simple syrup, give it bubbliness with carbonated water, cut the richness with a squeeze of lime and finally add a conservative amount of rum. White and rich, this drink will surely be a hit at your Grand Old Party.

Simple syrup ingredients: 2 parts water, 1 part sugar & a handful of mint sprigs

1. In a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat, dissolve the sugar in the water with the mint sprigs. When the syrup becomes greenish, remove from heat and chill.

Assembling the cocktail:
1/3 cup coconut milk
1 shot light rum
2 shots carbonated water
1 lime wedge

2. Spoon three tablespoons of the mint simple syrup into a glass.
3. Add the coconut milk, the rum, the carbonated water and the juice of a lime wedge
4. Stir vigorously and garnish with a mint sprig.
