I'm not here to encourage you to watch the presidential debates. But should you choose to do so, making the debate experience a little more exciting with a drinking game or a politically themed drink is something I can definitely encourage.

Perhaps The President Cocktail would help whet your political whistle -- or at least make everything about the debate more entertaining. It doesn't matter if you're Democratic, Republican or undecided; I'm not here to judge.



1 1/2 oz. White Rum
1/4 oz. Curacao
1/4 oz. Dry Vermouth
1 dash of Grenadine


Shake all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker, and serve in a chilled cocktail glass.
