Vote with your taste buds while watching the election results come in March 1
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Could the 2016 Presidential campaign season get any crazier?
Come to The Rustic in Uptown on Super Tuesday, March 1, and we’ll find out together!
For one day only, The Rustic will be serving up an array of delicious cocktails inspired by each of the men, and woman, still standing in the presidential field. As each cocktail is ordered, the “votes” will be tallied on a giant chalkboard for comparison with the real-time primary results.
“What better way to watch as history unfolds than with a great drink handcrafted in the image of our next Commander in Chief?” said Kyle Noonan, co-owner of FreeRange Concepts, creator of The Rustic. “So go out and cast your vote, then come by The Rustic for a party worthy of our Founding Fathers. We’ll be decked out in patriotic bunting, our TVs will be set to the local and national newscasts, and we’ll be celebrating everything that makes America great!”
From 11 a.m. till closing on March 1, guests will be able to choose from each of the following liberal libations and conservative creations –
Hillarita – A frosty cold concoction with a liberal helping of Dulce Vida Tequila and Paula’s Orange, served frozen or on the rocks (depending on which way the wind is blowing) and delivered in a mason jar by your own private server.
The Socialist – You’ll feel the Bern with this progressive cocktail topped with a scoop of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia and served with a straw of Vermont maple syrup. It’s free, plus $9 in taxes. We’ll redistribute $3 of every purchase to Kidd’s Kids.
Trumptini – A rich blend of Karlsson’s Gold Vodka and vermouth dusted in gold flakes, served in a martini glass and accompanied by a gold-rimmed plate of caviar. Trust us, it’s a winner. Many people have said it’s the best drink they’ve ever had. Absolutely no foreign ingredients.
Booz Cruz — An unabashedly conservative, Texas-sized punch born in the Canadian Rockies. Stiff as hell and doesn’t pair well with anything. You’ll be carpet bombing in no time.
Marco Libre — An overly ambitious mix of Florida ruby red grapefruit juice fused with un-aged Cuban rum. Well-scripted and just as good the second, third and fourth times, it’ll make you feel young again, though a bit out of place at the big kids’ table.
Kasich Kosmo– A harmless enough cocktail straight out of the Rust Belt, this nondescript blend of vodka, lime and cherry juice is a popular choice for the risk-averse. Warning: May lead to lame dad jokes.
Ben’s Brain Freeze — An intellectually stimulating yet understated cocktail featuring Plymouth Sloe Gin, hold the fizz. Order this one under your breath and prepare to melt into the background.
The Bush Bomb (#writeincandidate) – A mainstream concoction of vodka, gin, rum and triple sec that tastes like something you’ve had before and weren’t sure you liked. Topped off with a shot of Red Bull to keep you from dozing off early.
With its casual atmosphere, live musical acts and unique, full-service dining experience featuring farm-fresh, homestyle dishes and a Texas-sized selection of wines, spirits and 40 beers on tap, The Rustic has carved a distinctive niche among Dallas restaurants. The concept is the brainchild of Noonan, Sepkowitz and Texas country artist Pat Green, whose love of the outdoors and live music helped bring The Rustic to life. The result is a fun and relaxing concert and dining experience from a phenomenal patio, all under the big Texas sky.
