Drink of the Week, Satire Edition

So this happened yesterday, and it has been making the social media rounds like fire in a tire dump soaked in kerosene.

Yeah, ok. It’s funny. I’m not a Trump fan, but it happens and he was probably tired or sleepy. And if I had a dime for every time anyone had a misspelling, I would own Saudi Arabia. I was struck by the similarity to the word “coffee”, that life-giving nectar. Press coffee probably does suck, unless you’re at the White House, and even then it’s not guaranteed to be delicious.

Some stuff I learned about Prez while he was campaigning:

  • doesn’t drink alcohol, coffee, or tea (boo!)
  • likes cherry vanilla ice cream (props!)
  • sold vodka under his brand (wha….?)
  • prefers ginger ale (also props!)

So an idea was born!!!

The Covfefe Cocktail

  • 1 oz. vanilla vodka
  • 1 oz. maraschino liqueur
  • 3 oz. ginger ale
  • boozy cherries*

Pour ice and cherries sporadically into a tall glass. Then pour the vodka and liqueur, and then follow with the ginger ale. Stir to mix. The cherries will seem to be floating among the cubes! And yes, the cherries will hit hard, since they are soaked in vodka.

This was intended as satire, but I would be interested to hear if anyone tries it, too. I’ll be making this tonight and will report back once I wake up from the stupor 😉

*Boozy cherries are easy to make. Just drain half the juice from a jar of cherries and pour vanilla vodka in the jar. Keep in fridge for a few days and then use in your cocktails. You can also use plain vodka.

UPDATE!!

I tried it and it was really good! For those who prefer it less sweet, I would do half and half of ginger ale and club soda. And the cherries were DIVINE with the vanilla vodka. I can eat those alone or on ice cream.

  1. And you didn’t make me one when I was there…why exactly?

    Oh yeah, I was there prior to the covfefe kerfuffle

  2. It does sound good.
    But when I was younger we always soaked the cherries in grain….
