Election Night 2008 Party!!!!

Get ready for ELECTION NIGHT! Plan a party w/ these great suggestions & let the fun begin!

Instead of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, blind fold your guests & have them • PUT THE LIPSTICK ON THE PIG

(PRINT IT: double click on the image above, right click on the larger version, & save as to your computer)

• Get out your red & blue crayons
• Guess which state will go to which candidate before they are announced ~or~ • Color along as each state is announced

(PRINT IT: double click on the image above, right click on the larger version, & save as to your computer)

Every time you hear the word/phrase ...
"undecided voters" - take one drink
"swing states" - take one drink
"Ohio, Nevada, Pennsylvania" - take one drink
"red state" or "maveric" - Democrats take two drinks
"blue state" or "change" - Republicans take two drinks
"Nailin' Palin" - any mention of the upcoming Hustler feature, everyone take at least 3 drinks
• During a commercial break, everyone does a Sarah Palin imitation and the one with the best gets to tell the rest of the group how many drinks to take.
• Everyone puts on his or her best Joe Biden smile, and the one with the whitest teeth gets to tell the rest how many drinks to take.
• BONUS: For every state you colored incorrectly on the electoral map, take one drink. - adapted from the Cin Weekly's Drink to Victory

• Have Political Know-How, or Fake it:

The shot: Red, White, & Blue Shooter

• 1/3 oz blue curaƧao
• 1/3 oz grenadine
• 1/3 oz peach schnapps
(TIP: The key to layered shooters like this is to slowly pour the ingredients over a bar spoon in a certain order according to the density of the liquid.)
Other cleverly named drinks:
Theme it up at your Election Day party with these common drinks given fun politically minded new names. Think of it as the change we've all been waiting for.

McCain's Ribs
Dry Rub:
•1/3 part Garlic Powder
•1/3 part Salt
•1/3 part Pepper
•3 lemons
Turn the grill down to low temperature. Mix together garlic powder, salt and pepper. Then cover both sides of the ribs with that. Grill ribs, bone side down, for 90 percent of the time. It will take about an hour to an hour and a half. Squeeze the lemon on it frequently, because that makes it taste a lot better.
