Let's Toast


Months of campaigning reached an electrifying end last night with the re-election of President Barack Obama. Whether you voted Red or Blue, the voters spoke last night. It is now time for us all to come together and work to move this country forward.

In honor of the President's re-election, let us toast to the countless volunteers who worked tirelessly on both sides, the democratic system that gives voices to its people, the candidates and their families who have sacrificed so much and to you the voter, for making it to the polls against all odds.

What better way to toast, than with a cocktail iconic to the south side of Chicago, where the President's political career all started.  So fix yourself a drink, pat yourself on the back and let's get ready to WORK!

2 oz. vodka, gin, or white rum
The juice of one lemon
2 tsp. of granulated sugar

Place ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously to bruise the mint leaves
Strain into a chilled collins glass filled with ice



  1. It was a happy day for me, too! Love the photo of the cocktail! So pretty!
