Whether you’re more concerned with Hillary Clinton’s evasions and pneumonia, or Donald Trump’s tenuous relationship with facts, there’s one thing we can all agree on: This election cycle has been enough to drive anyone to drink. On Monday night, we’ll see the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates square off for the first time. What better time for a cocktail?
Luckily, we’ve created liquid tributes to both candidates that we feel express their inner essences. Like the candidates themselves, these two drinks could not be more heterogenous. The frothy Make America Grape Again is alcohol-free just like candidate Trump, and it’s traditionally consumed through a Krazy Straw. Meanwhile, Hillary’s Dirty Little Secret is a bracing jolt to the nervous system. It’s strong, ice cold, a little bit spicy and a little bit dirty. Make no mistake—it’ll get the job done.
While there were too many Republican candidates in the primary to merit cocktails for each of them, the Democratic side was a touch simpler. Those who want to reminisce about the heady days of Spring 2016 are invited to sooth their Bern-marks with Bernie’s Long Shot.
