A Presidential Drink – The Obamatini


Today is truly an American Day.

We’ve been on a bit of a cocktail kick lately, with two back to back cocktail posts. But adding this third cocktail drink to the queue is quite appropriate for today, to celebrate this momentous day, for President Barack Obama.

To this new administration and the incredible man, President Barack Obama, who has given hope to millions, and of whom we look to for the future leadership of this marvelous nation, we’ve created a cocktail toast to you. Cheers, Mr. President. Salute, Gan Bei, Kanpai, Che Loong, Salud, Prost, and in every language to man, “Cheers!” May you lead up forward with strength and unity.
