Make this creepy cocktail inspired by Donald Trump’s hair


Donald Trump may not be leading the pool of GOP presidential contenders anymore, but he has inspired a new cocktail.

Bon Appétit debuted the tongue-in-cheek drink, dubbed “The Combover” in time for the third Republican debate, which CNBC hosted Wednesday night.

The magazine recommends starting with the most expensive gin your liquor store carries: “Anything that maxes out your credit card will do.” Using a comb, you should then stir 2 oz. of gin with ½ oz. Goldschläger, ½ oz. yellow Chartreuse, and ½ oz. lemon juice.

Then make some spun sugar, using a recipe provided by Bon Appétit, and get it tangled up in the comb. “Really let it go wild,” the magazine recommends.

Finally: “Serve up in a gold-plated or diamond-encrusted glass—it will be most effective if you can get ‘Trump’ engraved in script—and pair with caviar.”

Bon Appétit does note that Trump is a teetotaler.

Here’s what the cocktail looks like:
