Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes (D-N.Y.) Could have passed from her barman career, but she has not lost her harness skills. On Monday morning, in response to an author and political analyst Anand Giridharadas, the new congress enthusiast excited his Twitter followers with a list of "Cocktail for the revolution".
His suggested cocktails include a Bitter Dark No Stormy for a world without Green New Deal (a series of ambitious ones) policies which would aim to combat climate change and iniquity in one fell swoop); Paid parental leave (a mocktail, or virgin, margarita), Policy Failure (anything with Goldschlager); and more.
Cocktail for the revolution:
– World w / o a #GreenNewDeal: a Bitter Dark n 'Stormy
– Transport clean: an 'Aviation, but keep the cream of violets
– Bridges, not walls: a greyhound of the Mezcal
– Paid parental leave: Margarita Mocktail
– Policy Failure: anything with Goldschläger

After Cortez's tweet, it did not take long before Twitter took part in the fun. "I would ask @AOC for a simple white Russian, but in this political climate I will wait until the 2020 elections, "a user tweeted, casting a casual eye on Mueller's investigation of the interference of Russian elections in the name of Trump's campaign. "New York without a green New Deal: a watered down Manhattan, " he wrote another one. "If you do the first with a splash of Jack, you'll get it." To Bitter Dark, "Stormy Daniels," another one jokes, referring to Trump's alleged relationship with the porn star Stormy Daniels.
Rather than stopping at a single stroke of magic on Twitter Cortez, the deputy offered a chaser in the comments. When asked for her tip for Brexit cocktails, she responded"Hard Brexit: a straight shot of bath gin, without imported botanists. "
The exchange impressed Giridharadas, who said that Cortez had provided his imaginary salon with "the best cocktail menu on the planet".
This is not the first time that Cortez has demonstrated the magic of social media. The youngest member of Congress has made such an explosion – not to mention a meal of his critics – who immediately after taking office was in charge of teaching his colleagues democratic representatives how to do Twitter.
Of course, like every statement by Cortez, the tweet ended up under the skins of its detractors, who wasted no time trying to deflate the amusing balloon with returns, like one mixing incorrectly together Quotes by Winston Churchill denouncing socialism, e another assigning it with "the crown for the most casual and stupid thought in a tweet".
But overall, most were just keen to taste the revolution.
Based on his discussion, it is quite clear that the bar will only be standing.
