Today is Hillary Clinton’s birthday. If you don’t know who she is, be sure to get out from under your rock and I’ll tell you. She has been in politics for many years. She came into the national scene as the First Lady of the United States, when her husband Bill was President. She has been a Senator, ran on the Democrat Party card in 2008, and when she lost that to Obama, she took the job of United States Secretary of State. With all the wars and terrorist acts going on right now, you can figure her dance card is probably pretty full. So, why not give this drink a try.
I found this on the website called Drunk Man’s Guide (www.drunkmansguide.com) and it was meant to be a joke for a drink. But, after reading what went in it, I felt it was worthy of print. Why not give a drink that’s named after her on her date of birth. Like her or not, you have to respect someone that could use a cocktail. Happy birthday, Hillary!
