RAISE A GLASS TO ELECTION DAY!
Facebook statuses and Twitter feeds are sure to exceed capacity as election results unfurl tonight. So why not take a break from your electronic devices (just this once!) and embrace the political hullabaloo—USA style—at your local bar. Here are 5 New York City bars serving up patriotic drinks in bipartisan options. We’ll drink to that!
· Legal-aged voters can enjoy “Rum-ney” shots at SideBAR or “Barack O-Bombs” at the Village Pourhouse, both $5. Still undecided? Why not try both, just to be safe!
· Looking for “Another 4 Years?” Indulge in the whiskey, blueberry, lemon and lime concoction over at Carmine’s in Midtown. Or if you prefer “The New Guy in Town,” sample that Absolut Cherrykran, cranberry and lemonade-laden beverage.
· Vodka fan? Head to the Library Bar at the Hudson Hotel for “The Donkey,” while bourbon-lovers should sip on the “Mint Romney.” But hey, don’t be afraid to switch sides—this is all in the name of flavor!
· Had a stressful day at the polls? Consider the “USA Martini” at the 40/40 Club. The indulgent mix of Godiva white chocolate liqueur, grenadine, blueberry vodka, vanilla vodka, and blue Curacao will give you a sugar high no matter who wins.
