Regardless of who you'll be voting for next Tuesday, celebrate the American tradition with a party that doesn't pick sides. From red, white, and blue Americana to regional nibbles from the candidates' home states and birthplaces, this menu is a bipartisan celebration of our fair country.
Patriotic Gin and Citrus Cocktail
Toast the night with a festive yet easy-to-pull-together gin and citrus soda cocktail. Accessorize it (or any cocktail, for that matter) with patriotic straws ($5) and ice cubes ($9) for a truly thematic tipple. Alternatively, serve up American beer or wine (bonus points for those with red or blue labeling).
If you're feeling particularly adventurous, set out Hawaiian li-hing mui snacks, like li hing mui dried plums ($16) or strawberry belts ($3). These salty-sweet dried plum candies are popular throughout Obama's place of birth.
