My Senator's First Time 

For their first alcoholic drink ever, what would you serve Sens. Waddoups and Valentine?

Austen Diamond:
A flaming Dr Pepper—and I wouldn’t tell them it is the most vile drink on Earth. Why anyone would chug a Dr Pepper, let alone an alcoholic tastealike, befuddles me as much as those two senators’ beliefs do.

Rachel Scott:
I would serve them the I-Got-So-Hammered-That-I-Realized-the-Error-of-My-Ways-and-Became-a-Progressive-Liberal martini.

Bryan Bale: They can’t even make good decisions when they’re sober. Why would we trust them with alcohol? Unless we could arrest them for legislating while intoxicated ...

Becca Andrus: First of all, I do not believe this would be their first drink ever. I will play along, though and serve them both a tall Belvedere tonic (a double, of course).

Kolbie Stonehocker: A High West whiskey sour.

Rachel Piper: I imagine they’re already breaking the word of wisdom and battling Diet Coke addictions, so a nice rum & coke would easily get them hooked on booze.

Scott Renshaw: As someone who recently dove into a beverage that’s not necessarily easy to embrace at first, I don’t think the “dipping your toe” approach works. All in or all out: Just a straight shot of Jack Daniels.

Dan Nailen: Keystone Light. Why waste something good?

Paula Saltas:
Screaming Orgasm. Use cheap vodka so the Baileys will curdle.

Erik Daenitz: I would mix them up a Grand Hoochie Skank Rosé.

    There is something about a self-taught artist who has developed the ability to look at the world through an artist's eyes. Peruvian-born Enrique Vera spent most of his life in the Nueva Leon region of northeast Mexico, and has developed an ability to capture the history, geography and culture of the region with his photography. Mestizo Gallery, in conjunction with local nonprofit organization Artes de Mexico en Utah, will present an exhibition of Vera's photography to close out its 2014 calendar.
