The Best Political Happy Hour in DC: Teddy’s Cocktail Voter Poll

Blog, The Bully Bar

Come help predict the results of the 2016 presidential election by participating in Teddy & The Bully Bar’s Cocktail Voter Poll! Throw your support behind your choice of two delicious drinks, The Trump Tower or Hillary’s Inbox, available daily after 4pm for $11 starting the first day of the Republican National Convention, Monday July 18.

trump towerOur mixologists have done it again: in 2012 they created fantastic politically-themed drinks especially for sister restaurant LINCOLN at election time in DC, when all happy hour talk turns to presidential hopefuls. For the 2016 election they’ve created two all-new drinks:

Trump Tower Earl Grey infused Absolut Elyx vodka, Dolin blanc vermouth, and aperol. A summery version of the traditional negroni, which some call today’s “it” drink: a strong, ubiquitous, zeitgeist-defining cocktail. Anthony Bourdain says it “hits you like a freight train after four or five.” Just like one of our presidential candidates?

Hillary’s Inbox – Absolut Elyx vodka, Drambuie, blue curacao, orgeat syrup, lime juice, and soda. A refreshing summer drink with an almond and citrus tang, but don’t worry: the contents of this cocktail are not classified.
