Whether the customers are voting for Weiner in November or not, they have taken to the new cocktail.

Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal just won’t go away. The mayoral candidate is facing countless jokes, and the recent revelation of his screen name, “Carlos Danger,” just added fuel to the fire.

A bistro in Brooklyn has created a new cocktail for its customers, aptly named the“Carlos Danger,” in honor of the former congressman. Manager of Buttermilk Channel, Richard Murphy, describes the concoction as “fruity,” “juicy,” and “kind of dangerous.” Whether the customers are voting for Weiner in November or not, they have taken to the new cocktail. Its popularity is rising just as Weiner’s polls are dropping.

Not in the neighborhood? You can sip the “Carlos Danger” at home as you watch the news (hopefully not on more of Weiner’s personal activities), or raise a glass to Weiner’s former campaign manager, Danny Kedem, who has decided to quit after the latest scandal.
