TGIF: Friday politicians and alcoholic beverage segment!




What exactly is the TGIF politician and alcoholic beverage of the of the week segment?

Every Friday The Political Commentator will select one politician living or dead along with an alcoholic beverage that has been selected just for them.

The selections will be somewhat tongue-in-cheek and the combination may at times be politically incorrect, but because it's a TGIF segment please accept it in the spirit(s) with which it is being done!

Any suggestions for future Friday's will be graciously accepted and considered with an open mind!

Today's politician and spirits combination is:

Retiring Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank and Sangria!

Super Fruity Sangria

1 Bottle of your favorite white wine (This recipe is just as delicious with a good red wine, if you so choose)

1 Lemon cut into wedges

1 Orange cut into wedges

1 Lime cut into wedges

1 Peach cut into wedges

1 Cup sliced strawberries

1/2 Cup lemonade or limeade

1/2 Cup Sugar

2 shots of apricot, peach or "berry" flavored brandy

2 Cups ginger ale

Optional: one can of diced pineapple pieces with juice

Preparation:

Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon, orange and lime into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and add sliced peaches, strawberries limeade/lemonade, sugar and brandy. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale and ice just before serving.

If you'd like to serve right away, use chilled white wine and serve over lots of ice.

    Personally, I don’t drink anything that doesn’t tell you in its name what it is:

    Rum and Coke
    Gin and Tonic
    Scotch and water
    Royal Crown neat
    All OK

    ‘Skip and go naked?’
    ‘Gay pirate?’
    ‘Harvey wallbanger?’
    ‘Fuzzy navel?’
    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    A young lefty wants to be on Medicare. What an idiot. Paul explained you are supposed to work to pay for the elderly on Medicare. Young people are really dumb.

    I think I found the appropriate stir stick for this drink being used to prop a window open a few posts back.

    So everyone has their own special drink? I guess that means Ted Kennedy is pretty much…anything.

    Or this.

    Since Aufklarer already took my “Fuzzy Navel” (LOL ), the only other one that comes to mind for Bawney is “Light-in-the-Loafers Beer”

    Incumbent Progs (both Dems & Rino) should be saluted with a Kamikaze – equal parts Vodka, Tripple Sec and Roses Lime.
