Election Night Drinking: What's The Perfect Political Cocktail?

Help me out, ChicagoNow readers.

Tomorrow night is Election Night and in my home that means a night spent glued to the television and computer waiting on the returns. In presidential elections past, my children were young and any celebrating was done with sparkling apple juice.

Now that they are all of voting age, I can let loose a little bit and enjoy a drink (or two) while watching the returns without the fear I’ll be setting a bad example.

Yes, Virginia, there are some advantages to getting older.

Anyhoo, I need suggestions for the perfect Election Night Cocktail. Champagne is always appropriate if one’s candidate triumphs, but there’s a lot a time between when the polls close and when the winner is announced.

So help me out, please? What’s the best drink for election night? What will you be drinking?
