Cheers! It's Election Day, which means after you cast your vote for your preferred presidential candidate, you should probably kick back and celebrate! After all, this momentous day only happens once every four years, so why not throw an impromptu party and invite some friends over?
Whether you're in favor of Barack Obama (like Katy Perry) or Mitt Romney (like Melissa Joan Hart), there's a patriotic-themed cocktail for you. Check out these festive recipes from Polar Seltzer, a zero calorie, zero carb, zero sugar, zero sodium (wowza!) beverage loved by stars like Kelly Bensimon, Kathie Lee Gifford, Andy Cohen and others:
1 part Patron Tequila
1 part Cointreau
1 part pineapple juice
1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
Pinch of sea salt
Polar Raspberry-Lime Seltzer
Fresh pineapple for garnish
Combine all of the ingredients, other than the seltzer in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Shake vigorously, until it shows condensation. Pour into glass. Top with Polar Seltzer and garnish with skewered pineapple.
Splash of cream
Polar Mint Chocolate Seltzer
Sprig of mint for garnish
In a cocktail shaker combine the cream and the chocolate syrup with ice. Shake vigorously, and then pour into a glass. Top generously with Polar Mint Chocolate Seltzer. Stir gently. Garnish with mint.
Drizzle the bottom of a large goblet with butterscotch and then scoop ice cream, drizzle again with more butterscotch. Top with Polar Butter Rum Seltzer.
So what are you sipping while watching the returns?
