A Letter to Mr. Obama


A Letter to Mr. Obama

Jump to Recipe


Let me start by saying thanks for the party this weekend. DC has been a lot of fun and it is largely because you have had such an open and fun inauguration. So thanks again.

The concert on Sunday was especially cool. In case you were curious where I was standing (I’m sure you were wondering), this is a photo I took looking toward the stage:


And looking behind me… please ignore the disgruntled faces. I promise we were all having fun.

Once you get all settled in you obviously have a lot of work to do, but I think you should take a few minutes to enjoy your new crib and relax with one of these:


You seem like a bourbon kind of guy although I’ve never met you in person. Nothing like an Old-Fashioned to really get relaxed. It is one of my favorite cocktails and I’ve had a few of them this weekend in your honor so I thought I would share how to make one in case you have an itch.

All you need is some good bourbon, sugar, maraschino cherries, an orange, and some bitters if that is your thing. Add a few cherries, and a slice of orange with the sugar and muddle them together with the back of your presidential spoon or something. Fill the glass with ice, add a few drops of bitters, and 2 ounces of your preferred bourbon.

Maybe make one for Michelle too.

If you are more of a visual guy, this might help:


Not that I’m saying you should drink a lot or anything, but a good stiff drink might help you every once in awhile.

Good luck the next four years (and maybe eight!)

  1. Indeed! The Parm bread was the last post with the old camera. Tomorrow will hopefully really display its awesomeness.

  2. Dearest Citizen,

    First off, you are welcome for the party. Second, you are correct, I am a bourbon man. Sure I may dabble in the scotches and whiskeys that our great nation has to offer on occasion but bourbon is my mainstay. A true American spirit. As I love my wife, I will offer to make her a Macheesmo-style Old Fashioned but I have to warn you, she likes bourbon straight up, neat.

    I will do my best for you over the next four years and I hope to continue gaining valuable insight into the world of food via your blog. Yes we can… find something that my wife can cook.

    Truly yours,

    B. Obama, Esq.

  3. yes, gramma B, it isn't what the koolaid kids thought t would be. hopefully we will get out of this mess in 2012 and and start to rebuild our wonderful country with someone who loves it. obviously myaco is a youngin'.
