Politically Charged Libations for the Presidential Debate with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE GIN

Politically Charged Libations for the Presidential Debate with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE GIN

In anticipation of this Sunday’s presidential debate (10/9) – what better way to get you through the night than politically-charged libations with Bombay Sapphire Gin?

From the “Swing-Vote Sangria” and “Presidential Punch” to the “The ‘Merican Dream,” no viewing gathering will be complete without these election-themed elixirs; certain to suit every party’s taste.

In honor of renowned artist Pedro Reyes’ latest Doomocracy immersive art installation with CREATIVE TIME in New York, Bombay Sapphire North American Ambassador, Gary Hayward, recently unveiled “The ‘Merican Dream” and “Vote For Me” cocktails. Carrying on the Americana theme, the signature The ‘Merican Dream cocktail glass was molded into the shape of America’s most beloved “King of Beers,” Budweiser, while The “Vote for Me” showcased cilantro-infused gin, a tip of the cap the man of the hour, pushing boundaries just like Reyes to heighten the 10 botanicals in Bombay Sapphire.

This Sunday, those who plan on tuning in to one of the most-watched presidential showdowns will have the opportunity to re-create these inspirational concoctions at home.

Cheers!

**A work of art in its own right, Hayward’s original The ‘Merican Dream took cues from our current political landscape (where balloons are abundant) and featured a tongue-in-cheek, 100% edible red balloon tasting of Bombay Sapphire made with a complex combination of isomalt (infused with the gin’s 10 botanicals), xanthan gum, and carboxymethyl cellulose.
