Shooter Recipes to Make the US Presidential Election Go Down Easy

In honour of the 2012 US Presidential Election, we’ve selected two shooter recipes for you to enjoy — The Republican Red Devil and the Democratic Blue Slammer.

Take your choice. But remember to choose wisely. Politics (like shooters) can be a dangerous game.

Shooter Recipes #1: The Republican Red Devil

Named in honour of Grand Bend’s favourite summer resident and the nominee for the Republican Party — Mitt Romney.

To make the Republican Red Devil, you’ll need:

  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 2 oz Clamato Juice
  • 5 drops of Tabasco sauce

Pour the Vodka into a shot glass; add tabasco sauce. Pour the Clamato juice into a seperate shot glass.

Shoot the Vodka/tabasco. Wait 10 seconds then shoot the Clamato juice.

Shooter Recipe #2: The Democratic Blue Slammer

Despite Mitt Romney being the closest thing we have to a local celebrity (that’s if you exclude Justin and Jeremy Bieber), we still have a soft spot for President Obama. His home state of Illinois is just a lake away. And Detroit is the closest thing that Michigan has to a beach town if you don’t count Saugatuck or Manistee.

To make the Democratic Blue Slammer, you’ll need:

  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Sambuca liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1 drop Lemon Juice

Put a drop of lemon juice in a shooter glass. Then add the Blue Curacao and Sambuca. Slowly add the Vodka.

Sit down. Shoot back. Enjoy!
