I am sure we can all agree that this election has been a wild ride. If you’re like me, you will want a drink when it is all over on November 8th. Some will be drinking in celebration, others in frustration. Whatever the outcome, we need to begin to rebuild friendships and come together. In that spirit, so we developed a special drink everyone can enjoy called the November 8th!

Whatever your views are, enjoy this fine cocktail with all your friends:

Apple Liqueur – although apple pies have been eaten since long before the European colonization of the Americas, “as American as apple pie” is a saying in the United States, meaning “typically American”. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, apple pie became a symbol of American prosperity and national pride.

Moonshine – Moonshine because of its base in Americana and troubled past.

Absinthe – To commemorate that this has been one crazy ride for everyone, and this is supposed to be a stiff drink.

Ginger Beer – This helps round out the flavors and adds a little bite not unlike this election season.

Now, if you vote:  

Blue add Blue Curacao

Red add Grenadine

If you don’t like either of those choices omit these and enjoy.


1.5 oz Apple liquor

1.5 oz Moonshine

Absinthe rinse

2-4 oz Ginger Beer

.5 oz of  Blue Curacao OR Grenadine
