DNC Drinking

What better time for a cocktail than while you're watching the American political process in action? With the Democratic National Convention now in full swing, it seems fitting to highlight a cocktail in honor of the host city, so with that, we bring you the Denver Mint, adapted from cocktaildb.

What will you be drinking this week to mark the festivities?
