Rock the Cocktail

With all the campaigning, punditry and debates, the presidential election can leave a bad taste in one's mouth. But having a little fun with the upcoming election may help ease those tensions. No matter the ideology of your patrons, there is definitely one thing everyone can agree on - A good cocktail is hard to resist.

Coming up with your own election-themed cocktails may not have an effect on the outcome of the presidential race, but will have your customers considering you as the best bipartisan establishment around.
