Cocktails To Make For Tonight’s Last Presidential Debate

By

The third and final presidential debate is coming up on Wednesday night at 9 pm EST.

This is the last time nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will be facing off on the debate stage. The debate comes three weeks before Election Day: the day when – with any luck – this national nightmare will be over.

These debates have become some of the most-watched political events of all time. Clinton and Trump are really going after each other, with Trump's absurdities and personal attacks taking the debates to a whole new level.

It's like WWE: Politics.

People are throwing debate parties because one thing is clear: We cannot make it through this election without some help from our friends alcohol.
