Five Inauguration Day Drinks to Squelch Our Sad Reality

0

We will drink heavily with these five Inauguration Day drinks to squelch our sad reality.

This Friday, the time will come to (unwillingly) accept the frightening invitation to a fresh hell. The time has come – and I can’t believe I’m typing this – when He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named will be inaugurated as the President of the United States. This Friday we will witness in collective horror as the Orange One takes the office – the biggest job in the United States, and arguably the world.

We will stand tall, we will stand proud, and together we will get through this. But this weekend, we drink to forget the pain. Let us help with five of the most essential drinks for this cataclysmic event.

Irish Car Bomb
The name alone is violently and politically charged, and our country may very well feel like a bomb went off after Friday. This is the drink to begin with, because like the inauguration, it’s all down hill from here. Bottoms up, kids.

Boilermaker
Things are heating up, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. We’re like the lobster boiling in the pot, and this drink will help ease us into the slow rise of hot water.

Snakebite
If you’ve noticed so far, all of these are beer based. The reason? 2017 will be a lot of political filler, and like beer, it’s going to make us thick in all the wrong places.

Tea-Infused Cocktails
Take back our dignity with a cup’a tea  and a pinky in the air, mingled with some booze to make it all worth while. Go for a Whiskey Green Tea Punch – it won’t let you down, like everything else probably will.

Poloma
Orange Man wants to build a wall to separate us from the country that gave us the Poloma? Go to hell! Go liquor-forward here (aka, strong) and celebrate all things Mexico, and have a cheers to his immediate impeachment.
