The 51st State: A Drink for Inauguration Day
Whatever your political leanings, here is a brand new cocktail created seven and a half minutes ago to commemorate this day when Donald Trump (yes, I'm not making that up) became our 45th President of the United States. (Yes, the Irony-Meter is way in the Red Zone. "Turn it off, before it blows!") A marvelously delicious drink to help you celebrate, or to help deaden the pain (and ease your way to that 51st state). And after three of these, things look pretty good! May God have mercy on our souls.
THE 51st STATE 1 part Hennessy V.S. Cognac 1 part Yellow Chartreuse 1 part Aperol ¼ part fresh-squeezed Lime juice dash of Hella Bitters Citrus bitters Shake everything over ice, then strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with a liberal dose of denial.
Yes, things have gotten surreal...
