Drinks Q & A with Rachel Maddow

Interesting drink discussion with the fantastic Rachel Maddow…

Imbibe: If you could make a cocktail for Barack Obama, what would it be?
Rachel Maddow: I’ve heard that Barack Obama is a martini drinker–maybe that’s apocryphal, but that’s what I’ve heard. I’d make him a Pineau Martini (2 oz. gin, 1 oz. Pineau des Charentes)–I think it’s accessible for martini lovers, but with a novel, tasty twist. And Pineau is such a great weird liqueur with such a great weird story about its discovery–it would make for a good conversation-starter. I’m tempted to suggest an Aviation [with crème de violette] as well–but serving the new Democratic president a blue drink is just too cliché.
