At this Saturday’s White House Correspondents Association dinner, Reuters is going to have some fun mixing alcohol and current events. At the pre-dinner bash (which we fully intend on crashing) guests will be able to choose from:
• Hillary’s Bosnian Bull-shooter:
If you’re hoping to get intoxicated from this drink, run for cover. A single shot will keep you honest. It’s nothing more than distilled water imported from Tuzla.
• Barack O’Bomber:
More popular than ever with the younger set, the O’Bomber is sure to bowl you over. For a truly religious experience, polish it off and order another. You’ll be singing its praises — and Wrightfully so. It’s a Vodka, Jagermeister, Red Bull energy drink with a lime wedge.
• The Senior Moment:
This one packs such a punch that you’ll have trouble distinguishing one extremist group from another. Scotch on the rocks, no twist.
Those are just the candidate drinks. After the jump, some other potent political potables…
The quintessential dirty martini. One part vermouth, one part vodka, one part olive juice â€“ where three is anything but a crowd. You do the math.
Love Potion Number 9
Created at Washington’s own Mayflower hotel, this white whine Spitzer is known to keep you coming back for more. White wine, topped with seltzer.
This Idaho-distilled Vodka libation will have you tapping your toes in no time. Chilled vodka, triple sec, lime juice, and cranberry juice.
The Tongue Twister
The President’s personal pre-speech drink. The carefully selected ingredients can get muddled when shaken. Part flat, part sparkling, and sometimes really sharp, this libation needs no alcohol. Orange slices, ice, mint leaves, and simple syrup in an ice-filled shaker topped with half still and half sparkling water.
