Betting on Bush Drinking Again

BetCRIS chat On Bush DrinkingA couple weeks ago, we wrote a story called "Bush Drinking Again? Wanna Bet?" The long and shot of it was that recently the Enquirer broke a story saying Bush was hitting the bottle again in the wake of stressful current events. Shortly after, a betting site called BetCRIS put out a press release saying they were putting odds on whether it was really true, along with some other interesting betting (like Bush becoming a Muslim, for example).

It was a blatant publicity move, but we liked the cut of their jib. And we were also curious whether anyone was actually betting on our fearless leader falling off the wagon. So, we went to their site and chatted with one of their customer service reps about it, and learned...nothing. They had no idea. So we emailed the BetCRIS marketing department about it, but a week later we haven't heard back.

We don't think anyone is actually betting on it, but we have a question for our readers. If George Bush is drinking again, what kind of libation would you mix up for him if you got a chance? Gin and Tonic? Rum and Coke? We recommend a Hurricane...you'll find the recipe below.

Hurricane Drink Recipe

2 ounces amber rum
1/4 cup passion fruit juice, or 1 tablespoon passion fruit syrup
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
1/2 teaspoon grenadine
Juice of 1/2 lime
Cherries and orange slice to garnish
Ice cubes

In a cocktail shaker mix the rum, passion fruit juice and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add the grenadine, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Add the ice cubes and shake. Strain Hurricane into a cocktail glass. Garnish with orange and cherries. Yield: 1 serving
