Election Cocktails

Just a little bit of fun for a Halloween, pre-election Friday. Available now through the election on Tuesday (yes, it will finally be over), you can get a special election martini at Morton’s Bar 12-21. Democrat-tinis, Republican-tinis, and for those of you who somehow still haven’t chosen a side – Undecided-tinis. I know, cheesey, but fun. Costs run $11 per drink. (Happy hour food specials are happening too!) Of course, Morton’s will be broadcasting the elections, so you can come out and cheer on your candidate and watch the stimulating news coverage. At our house, we’ll be tuned to Jon Stewart & Steven Colbert’s live coverage.

Staying home? The fine folks at Morton’s have provided us with the recipes.

Democratini:

  • 1.5 oz Absolut Citrus Vodka
  • 1 oz Blue Curacao
  • .5 oz Sour Mix
  • Place all ingredients into shaker and add ice. Shake 15 times and strain into a Martini Glass.

Republican-tini:

  • 1.5 oz Absolut Citrus Vodka
  • 1 oz Pama
  • .5 oz sour mix
  • Place all ingredients in a shaker and add ice. Shake 15 times and strain into a Martini Glass.

Undecided-tini:

  • 1.5 oz blue curacao
  • 1 oz Pama
  • .5 oz pomegranate syrup
  • Place Blue Curacao into shaker and add ice, shake 15 times and strain into martini glass. Place Pama and Pomegranate syrup into shaker. Shake 15 times and slowly strain down the side of the Martini glass so that the mixture floats to the bottom. You should have half red with half blue floating on top.

    The Undecided-tini looks the best but I still have problems believing anyone is really undecided in this election!
