The First Couple, which frequents interesting restaurants when they come to New York, and has sponsored some adventurous dinners at the White House, apparently has lousy taste in cocktails.
Wayne Curtis, cocktail expert and contributor to The Atlantic, recently dropped by the Maine resort town of Mount Desert Island, where the Obamas vacationed in July. Curtis visited the bar Havana, where the President and his wife were known to have gone, and asked the bartender what libations they had orders.
Grey Goose Martinis. Vodka Martinis. Not-even-very-good-vodka Martinis.
Maybe now the American people will believe the President when he says he's one of them.
