The 3 Cocktails You'll Need To Survive Election Day

The 3 Cocktails You'll Need To Survive Election Day

While we often shy away from talking about politics, it's no secret that this year's Election Day will go down as one of the most dramatic, unbelievable and provoking times in our government's history. So while we won't be instructing you on who to vote for – though we hope you're smart enough to know – we'll gladly tell you what to drink, because chardonnay, aged rum and iced vodka are always a good idea.

Plus, we'll all need a drink after this political reality show, TBH.
