What will Obama and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell drink for the “Bourbon Summit?” suggests a few of our own politically themed whiskey and Bourbon cocktails along with a list of Bourbons which might be appropriate for this Bourbon Summit. (Add to our list with YOUR suggestions under comments here).

For these cocktails, we’re using Filibuster Dual Cask Bourbon and also whiskeys from The Copper Fox Distillery (based near D.C.). Mixologist Stephen Dennison and his “Capitol Cocktails” stimulate your taste buds and make you lobby for more.
