Three Themed Cocktails to Drink on Election Night

Home / OUT OF OFFICE / Three Themed Cocktails to Drink on Election Night
You deserve these.
"Cheers!"

The 2016 presidential race has been one for the ages. On Tuesday, the media frenzy will switch gears from discussing tumultuous debate rhetoric and reveal who will be the next President.

Do everything in your power to have a drink in your hand when this happens.

After leaving the polls and grabbing an “I Voted” sticker, DC hot spots are hosting watch parties to celebrate the close of this race with election-inspired cocktails.

Art & Soul restaurant will be serving up Swing State cocktails– an homage to Ohio and New Hampshire. The Oval Room is serving their Build That Wall cocktail, and Teddy and the Bully Bar will have Hillary’s Inbox.

After casting your vote, the only other decision you’ll have to make is whether or not you should have another round.

Here’s a list of notable election night parties to attend on November 8th:
