3 Election Day Drinks Worth Your Vote

Election Day got you down? Tell me about it. Bad hombres, nasty women … It’s enough to drive anyone to drink. So let’s make this election great again.

We’ve come up with some pretty terrific drinks to get you through this less-than-terrific Tuesday. Forget the Republican Party, forget the Democratic Party, tonight is all about the cocktail party.

Hell, even Franklin D. Roosevelt had cocktail parties in the White House ... once Prohibition was appealed in 1933, I'm sure. Rumor has it FDR had two martinis every night before dinner - it was a White House staple. FDR even shared his recipe with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin. Can you imagine what Trump would drink with Putin?

Grab the booze and hang on to your hats. This could be a bumpy ride, that is, unless you check out these smooth drinks. Here are our picks for the best drinks to get you though the election:
