Don’t booze, vote!

Just kidding, you can definitely do both…but no boozing until after you’ve voted!

If you’re anything like me you are already planning your Election night party. No Election night (especially this one) is complete without some boozy political themed cocktails. I’ve compiled a list below so you too can be the nasty woman hostess with the mostess!

1. The Contra Margarita

  • 1 1/2 ounces of tequila
  • 1/2 ounce of Triple Sec
  • 1 ounce of fresh lime juice

As much salt on the rim as Eric Trump is probably feeling right about now.

2. The Nasty Woman Cosmopolitician

  • 2 ounces of Vodka
  • 1/2 ounce of Triple Sec
  • 3/4 ounce of Cranberry Juice
  • 1/2 ounce of Lime Juice
  • Years of PREPARATION

3. The Candy Kaine

  • 1 1/2 ounces of white Creme de Cacoa
  • 1 ounce of cream
  • 1 ounce of Peppermint Schnapps
  • 1 candy cane garnish

4. Pence-a Colada

  • 2 ounces Cream of Coconut
  • 2 ounces Pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 ounce of light rum
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1/2 ounce dark rum
  • 1 piece of fresh pineapple as a garnish
  • 20 ounces of denial and not being able to drink this in Indiana businesses

5. Make Absinthe Great Again

  • 1 ounce Absinthe
  • 1 sugar cube

Absinthe might’ve had a bad reputation in the early 1900’s but it’s time to make it great again! At the very least it might cause you to hallucinate — altered reality could be beneficial on this election night. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
