Satirical Presidential Candidate Cocktail Recipes

The Cocktail: “The Donald – Pour two parts Dom Perignon and one part castor oil into in a Depression-era Champagne coupe. Serve it with a lemon twist and topped with egg white meringue.

2.The Candidate: Hillary Clinton (Democrat)

The Cocktail: “The Hillary Rodham Clinton” – One part sweet and sour mix and one part each of seven different liquors (choose whatever seems to be the most popular, but one of the seven most be Crown Royal).

3. The Candidate: Bernie Sanders (Democrat)

The Cocktail: “Feel the Bern Moscow Mule” – Mix two parts Fireball with one part homemade bottled ginger beer. Pour into a thrift store glass of any type and stir in authentic Vermont maple syrup to taste. Top off with Heady Topper beer (brewed in Vermont) and light on fire to “feel the Bern.”

The Cocktail: “The Ted Collins” – Mix one part Canadian whiskey and one part sickly sweet lemonade soda served in a Collins glass while wearing a really bad suit and a super creepy smile.

7. The Candidate: Jeb Bush (Republican)
