Constitution Day Drink the American Beauty

Did you realize that September 17th was also Constitution Day and Citizenship Day? As far as I’m concerned every holiday is another excuse to have some drinks.

So we’ve brought you a new mixed drink recipe that will have you talking constitutional non-sense, half slurred, all night long. This drink is called the American Beauty.

How to Make the American Beauty

Whipping yourself up this mixed drink isn’t that difficult at all. So put on your favorite American Flag bandana (optional) and get to sipping.


  1. 1 Shot of Brandy
  2. 1/2 Shot of Dry Vermouth
  3. 1 Shot of Orange juice or Lemonade
  4. 1/4  Teaspoon of Creme de Menthe
  5. 1 Teaspoon of Grenadine
  6. 1/2 Shot of Port Wine
  7. Ice Cubes


In a shaker or big glass, add your ice cubes and all your other ingredients except for the Port Wine. Once you have done that, go ahead shake it up or if you don’t have a shaker just stir that thing really damn good.

Transfer the combined ingredients into your drinking glass and then finish it up by slowly and gently pouring the Port Wine across the top of the other liquids.

That’s all there is to it. Now you can start getting skunked on Constitution Day aka Citizenship Day with some fine tasting American Beauty mixed drinks.
