Bottom Shelf Mixology: Bern Down for What

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology™!  Our staff of Mixologists have racked their brains (and livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

As part of our celebration of Three Years on the Bottom Shelf, our staff of mixologists have started imagining some drinks for the only people we see on TV more than the Kardashians: Presidential Candidates*.

Our third and final drink in the series is based around the long shot that reminds everyone of their quite possibly crazy uncle.

Bern Down for What (Old Vermont)

  • 1 1/2 oz Brigadier Gin
  • 1/4 oz Lemonade
  • 1/4 oz Diet Orange Soda
  • 1/2 oz Store Brand Lite Butter Flavored Syrup
  • 2 dashes Bitters
  • Ice

Pour everything into your shaker, and vigorously shake for thirty seconds.

Strain the drink into your glass (if you are having a party, strain equal parts of the drink into a shot glass for everyone).

This drink is sure to make you feel the burn, in both your gut and your colon.
