For some voters, the back and forth of the 2016 Election season could lead some to drink.

The Omni Hotels and Resorts chain has splashed together several alcoholic beverages to whet your appetite for your "Drink the Vote" party. 

They offer several options, including the Trump-Tini and the Hilal-Rita.

Cesar Matus, director of Food and Beverage Outlets at Omni Hotels and Resorts, displays the drinks and share how they are made in an interview with the ABC Action News Weekend Morning Edition team Sunday, Oct. 30.

Recipes include: 
Hilal-Rita: The sweetness of orange juice, agave and DeKuyper Amaretto mixed with the kick of Tres Generaciones Reposado Tequila all wrapped up in one cocktail aims to embody the presidential candidate. A sugar and salt rim fully round out the cocktail's power.
Sugar Kaine Smash: Strong yet subtle, the cocktail is made with Maker's 46, fresh mint leaves, simple syrup and finished with club soda to add a little fizz.
True Blue Mule: Best representing the Democratic name, the True Blue Mule is made with Tito's Handmade Vodka, ginger beer and Blueberry Reàl Infused Syrup to honor the Democratic color and a mule to reflect the iconic donkey symbol.
Trump-Tini: Crafted with Tito's Handmade Vodka, it's sweet from a sugared rim, tart from the lemon and cranberry juices, and has a sparkling finish from the Domaine Chandon Brut.
The Right Manhattan: A refreshing mix of Maker's 46, apricot preserves and lemon juice, muddled with mint and topped with club soda.
Ruby Red Pence: Cranberry juice and Deep Eddy Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka give the cocktail its Republican red hue, while St. Germain Elderflower liqueur adds warming floral notes.
Pouts Punch: The wildcard! Tito's Handmade Vodka is mixed with grenadine, fresh orange and lemon juices and muddled with blackberries for a fresh taste.
