The Nasty Woman and the Bad Hombre: Two Cocktails to Help You Get Through the Election

Election night is finally upon us and there’s nothing that caps off this presidential race better than two strong cocktails (we need it.) Ever since the debate where Trump named Hillary a “nasty woman” and referred to some immigrants as “bad hombres,” the terms have been hash tagged, put on tee shirts, and used for just about anything . Bars everywhere are mixing up classic cocktails to fit the “Nasty Woman” and “Bad Hombre” titles, and are even having election night parties!

Knowing that Hillary’s go-to cocktail is a classic vodka martini, it’s only fitting to make a “Nasty Woman” a dirty martini. For the “Bad Hombre” I chose a cocktail with tequila, absinthe, and some ginger beer. So tune in and watch as states turn colors, counts come in, and a new President of the United States is chosen. If you’re interested in playing a drinking game during the election, count these cocktails in!
