Presidential Cocktails

Updated: Dec 4, 2020

In honor of the last presidential debates of 2020, I created two cocktails to represent the nominees. I love to do something with a theme and play with alcohol but you can drink these cocktails any time. I also created a champagne cocktail for election night because even if your candidate doesn't win, you will be winning with champagne!

Let’s start sweet not sour

Watermelon gin gimlet


2 oz Watermelon juice

2 oz Gin

1/2 oz Lime juice

1/2 oz Simple syrup

Recipe: in a shaker with ice, pour gin, watermelon juice, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake until cold. Pour into a chilled coupe glass.

Now we are a bit bitter

Every Campaign needs Champagne
