The Election Night Bittersweet Cocktail

The Election Night Bittersweet Cocktail

This has been one bitter election season.  Here's a somewhat literal interpretation with a nice balance between bitter and sweet.  Sip slowly with CNN on mute while listening to Frankie Beverly and Maze.  You deserve to blow off a little steam after standing in line for two hours to vote.  


2 parts bourbon

1 part fresh squeezed orange juice

1 teaspoon raw honey

1 dash Campari

Splash sparkling water


Add all ingredients except the club soda to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake vigorously then let sit for about a minute.  Shake again and strain into two glasses.  Add a splash of sparkling water and a twist, if desired.
