Watching the VP Debates? Start Drinking Now


Need a little liquid courage to watch the VP debates tonight? Try our specialty cocktails, and don’t forget to do a shot everytime Sarah Palin wrinkles her cute little nose while uttering something unspeakably stupid and/or nasty.

The I Can See Russia From My House

1 pint Budweiser
1 shot vodka

Drop vodka shot into glass of Bud and chug. Repeat until you can see Russia from your house.

The Abstinence Only

1 shot absinthe
3 dashes bitters

Fill a glass full of crushed ice. Pour the absinthe over, and shake in the bitters. Serve. Remember to keep your legs closed!

The Nutty Bitch

1 shot almond liqueur, such as Amaretto
1 shot hazelnut liqueur, such as Frangelico
2 shots vodka
1 walnut, for garnish

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake. Strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with the walnut, and guzzle until anything Sarah Palin says makes sense. Repeat as necessary.
