Bars, just say no to blue curaçao. It’s gross and it’s only appeal is that it’s, well, blue. I know you want to have blue and red cocktails, but c’mon, get creative. Think outside the ballot box.

That’s just one of the problems with the cocktails at Policy: the Basil “Barack”-Berry and the Pomegra”Mitt” mojito.

Both of these drinks taste like Jolly Ranchers to me; the predominant flavor is sugar. I don’t taste any hints of the basil and mint that are supposedly in these drinks.

The crowd here is going wild anytime a state is called for Obama. Boos erupted when CNN called Oklahoma for Romney. But the drink results are less clear.

I suggest you do the equivalent of voting for Gary Johnson, and stay away from the mainstream candidates here. Maybe a beer instead?
