Everyone is talking about politics these days and instead of focusing on anything negative or our differences of opinion, let's enjoy a few Presidential inspired cocktails instead! These recipes salute the United States with a range of ingredients that each of the following former Presidents desired:

  • Toast to a Hornitos Renegade with Barack Obama as he loves a cold draft.
  • Shake up a Rooseveltini like FDR loved to sip!
  • Taste Buchanan's Best cognac cocktail in memory of James Buchanan's liquor of choice.
