This cocktail created by Steve King and Owen Thomson, bartenders at Bourbon in Washington, DC, is a little red and a little blue. Referring to the 2008 US presidential election, I think this drink's name is appropriate, not only from a personal political viewpoint, but as an inevitable outcome. Politics aside, it's a great, refreshing drink that has an air of creativity without using exotic ingredients that you have to hunt for.
