Game-Time Decision

It’s the day before Election Day and I still have no idea who to vote for. It’s all my fault too, since I don’t go out of my way to research who stands for what. That’s mainly because I don’t think there is a source out there that gives unbiased information. So call me what you will, but I plan on making my decision about who the next president should be the same way I choose my cocktails: I got it narrowed down to two options, whichever one I say when the bartender takes my order is the one I’m stuck with. Usually, I have no regrets.

The Maverick
3 parts Grey Goose vodka
1/4 part Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth
2 dashes orange bitters
3 olives

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add vermouth, stir well and then strain out excess. Add two dashes of orange bitters and Grey Goose vodka. Stir well until the outside of the shaker is frosted and beaded with sweat. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with three olives.

Muddled Rebuttal
5 raspberries
1 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 parts Grey Goose Le Citron
Fresh squeezed lemonade

Muddle 5 fresh raspberries with 1 tsp. sugar. Pour into tall glass over ice. Top with vodka and lemonade. Garnish with lemon wedge.
