It’s Election Day! Finally. This has been a long and bitter presidential campaign: it’s time to relax and celebrate American democracy in action. (Or drown your sorrows in a good drink.) So we’re putting on our EaterHampton hat for today and bringing you some recipes for election-themed cocktails via our friends at Park Place Wines.
2 oz. vodka
4 oz. Goslings Ginger Beer
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice (or squeeze half of a lime)
Wedge of lime (optional garnish)
Add ice to a glass followed by the vodka and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a top secret lime wedge.
The Orange Elephant
2 oz. orange juice
2 oz. orange vodka
1 oz. Sweetshine Orange Cranberry Liquor
2 dashes Bitterman’s New England Cranberry Spice Bitters
This variation of the traditional pink elephant cocktail is perfect for drinkers with tiny hands. Add all of the ingredients to a shaker full of ice. Shake well and pour into a chilled martini glass.
They Go Low, We Go Highball
2 oz. bourbon
2-4 oz. club soda
2 dashes Bitterman’s Buckspice Ginger Bitters
Add ice to a tall narrow glass. Next, add the bourbon, club soda, and bitters (feel free to add up to 4 dashes if you’re a nasty woman.)
The Gin and Locker Room Tonic
2 oz. gin
4 oz. tonic water
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 lime wedge
Fill a tall, narrow-mouthed glass with ice near the top. Pour gin, tonic water, and lime juice over the ice. Stir well and garnish with lime wedge. Best enjoyed on a tour bus, not a locker room, hot mic optional.
