Infuse the Vote: The Cocktail Party

Undoubtedly you have seen enough commercials, heard enough commentary and read enough Facebook stati (or statuses) to know tomorrow is a pretty big day. For those who are unaware (and honestly at this point scare me a little) tomorrow we cast our votes for the President of the United States (as well as for many other elected officials).

I’m not here to change or make-up your mind for you… at least not when it comes to politics. There are plenty of political themed blogs for that. I am simple here to tell you to not only VOTE… but on this great day in our country, Support America. Whether it’s an election night Keystone Light drinking game, a post-vote American Craft Beer/Cider or a glass of your favorite Bourbon (kept cold by your new whiskey stones), just make sure you elect American. And to help, a few #Infused recipes:
