Whether you’re looking for a new cocktail to sip on while you read over Mueller’s report that will inevitably be released to the public or you’re throwing a resistance-themed party, you’ll certainly find what you’re looking for here. These politically themed cocktails will get you more twisted than having to listen to Trump’s obnoxious voice drone on about witch hunts and fake news. Serve any of these drinks at your next gathering, and people won’t be able to stop talking about it for weeks.
The Nasty WomanN
The perfect pre-game cocktail for any girls-night, the Nasty Woman is both light and refreshing. Not to mention the fact that it will knock you on your ass. Skip your basic vodka-soda this weekend and try something with a bit more substance.
- 1/2 oz. simple syrup
- 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 2 oz. Square One basil vodka
- 1 1/2 oz. of Fever-Tree Bitter Lemon soda
- Garnish: 3 Thai basil leaves
Shake vodka, lemon juice, and vodka together. Double strain into a glass, and top with lemon soda. Garnish with basil.
If you’re looking for a cocktail that has a more visual punch, then give The Donald a try. Severed in a tall glass and topped with cotton candy, the drink represents the man himself. Far from subtle, it’s both deliscious and hilarious.
- 2 oz. vodka
- 1/2 oz. Goldschläger gold-leaf cinnamon schnapps
- Orange juice
- Garnish: Orange wheel and cotton candy
Pour the vodka and Goldschläger over ice, and top with the orange juice. Garnish with an orange wheel and big puff of cotton candy.
The Bad Hombre
Trump’s presidency has gone out of its way to destroy the reputation of immigrants, specifically those from Mexico. Calling them criminals is probably the kindest stereotype the president has spread about Mexicans during his presidency. The Bad Hombre can either be taken as a literal translation of who Trump is or it can give your gathering a badass Latino vibe to show your support for the immigrants who run our country.
- 1 dash chili bitters
- 2 dashes chocolate bitters
- 1/4 oz. Tempus Fugit creme de cacao
- 3/4 oz. Cocchi di Torino vermouth
- 2 oz. Ilegal Reposado
- Garnish: 1 small chili de arbol and a dash cinnamon
Stir ingredients over ice, pour into a cocktail glass and add garnish.
This political cocktail is both intriguing and nauseating. The Combover almost looks too realistic to drink, but it certainly does a good job capturing Trump’s lovely golden locks of hair. “Bon Appetit” recommends using Nolet’s Reserve gin, which goes for $700 a bottle and is wrapped in gold but if that’s not available they mention that “anything that maxes out your credit card will do.” They also suggest using a “handmade animal horn” comb to stir the drink, serve it in a “gold-plated or diamond-encrusted glass” and to pair the cocktail with caviar. Yep, sounds about right.
- 2 oz. Nolet’s Reserve gin (or the most expensive bottle you can find)
- 1/2 oz. Goldschläger
- 1/2 oz. yellow Chartreuse
- 1/2 oz. lemon juice
- Garnish: Spun sugar and a comb
Spun Sugar Ingredients:
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup water
Using a fancy comb, stir together the gin, Goldschläger, yellow Chartreuse, lemon juice. Garnish the cocktail with the spun sugar tangled into the comb.
