“Craft Cocktails by Val: Drinks Inspired by Hillary Rodham Clinton” merges two creative practices, fine art and craft cocktails. Heike Kevenhörster shares her original drink recipes, chronicling the US presidential election of 2016, its lead-up and aftermath. Each cocktail is paired with an original photo collage by the visual artist Sarah Sole, also made in real time during the campaign.
Whether you feel like pouring a bright red “Shoulder Shimmy” or a luscious “Woman Card”, the choices are here. Go for a harsh “Glass Ceiling”, opt for an unexpected “October Surprise” or choose a soothing “Swiss Sleep Sanitarium”. Or how about a “Hot Roddy”? Not to be outdone, Clinton’s opponents Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump also get their own cocktails. And if you would rather forget the whole fiasco that was the US presidential election of 2016, grab “The Cloth”, an alcohol-rich drink that comes in a bucket.
The book title refers to the character “Val”, a bartender played by Clinton herself in an episode of the comedy show “Saturday Night Live”. In the skit, which aired on October 3, 2015, “Val” serves drinks to the character “Hillary Clinton” played by the actress Kate McKinnon. In this book, you will find forty-seven craft cocktails that “Val” could have served.
