Drink of the Week: The Midterm Toss-Up

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The 2014 election season is over, but tensions are still high on both sides of the aisle. Whether you're celebrating a political victory or mourning lost dreams — or simply want to repress the memories of all those campaign ads — it's time for a drink.

So imbibe and show a bit of bipartisan patriotism this weekend with the multilayered Midterm Tossup.

Alcohol: First, dribble some grenadine into the bottom of a shot glass. Carefully pour Rum Chata on top of the red base, and cap off the shot with a splash of UV blue raspberry vodka. Again, pour cautiously so the colors stay in place.

Advice: The Tossup is a blast of sugar — much like Joni Ernst's gushing, sanguine victory speech — so toss it back quickly before the red, white, and blue has intermingled. If you really want to show your American pride, propose a toast and recite the Pledge of Allegiance, Gettysburg Address, or, more appropriately, the GOP preamble.
