LAS VEGAS (AP) - Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman is weighing in on the presidential race with two special cocktails at his steakhouse in downtown Sin City.
One beverage is called the "No-Bama." The other political drink served at Goodman's Beef, Booze & Broads restaurant is called the "Romney."
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://tinyurl.com/cukfhvs ) the "No-Bama" has 2 ounces of Jefferson's 10-year-old straight rye whiskey, 1.5 ounces of Canton ginger liqueur, a half-ounce of Sombra, three-fourths ounce of lemon and three-fourths of an ounce of simple syrup.
So what's in the "Romney?" Tap water.
Goodman is among several Nevada political figures who have criticized President Barack Obama for suggesting people not spend a lot of money in Las Vegas. Goodman since then says the president is welcome at his restaurant.
