Man, 2020 seems like the shit cherry on top of a shitty four-year cake, no? We're not Americans but we are invested. To us, the US elections are like a coked-up version of a telenovelised car crash—name calling; lots and lots of shouting; lies and the lying people that tell them; more shouting…
And now with the elections upon us, the world waits with bated breath at this series finale. While we wait, let us toast to this trash fire of a year or four with Chico Loco's El Presidente Elections Cocktails.
They have the Orange is the New Asshole, a homage to President Trump. It's a mezcal cacao negroni made with Rinomato, Mancino Vermouth Chinato, Tempus Fugit and black walnut bitters. Joe Biden is represented by the Really, Really Old-Fashioned: you take your classic Old-Fashioned and you add mezcal, Jalapeño agave, Angostura, aged oranges and firewater bitters.
No matter which cocktail you imbibe, at least, you'll be proper soused enough to accept whatever results (and fallout) that will follow. Chin-chin!
Chico Loco's limited edition El Presidente Elections Cocktails retail at SGD18 each.
