Has the 2016 Presidential election been driving you to drink? Well, good news is you are definitely not the only one. We figured that if all the back-and-forth between Dangerous Donald and Crooked Hillary is going to force us to kick back a few more than we planned on, the future Mr. or Mrs. President should at least get the honor of being named after the one thing that can calm our nerves during this election.

Without further ado, we present to you the 2016 Presidential cocktail candidates…

You’re Fired:

The Donald’s catchphrase is finally being put to good use because this drink is straight flames.

  • 3/4 shot fireball
  • Top with amaretto

You will never look at Trump’s skin tone the same again once you take a sip of this delicious cocktail.

Sour Puss:

You’ll be making Donald’s grumpy old man face too once you take a sip of this.

Liar Liar Pants on Fire:

This shot will make you forget all about Hillary’s emails.
