WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has a message for all you bourbon aficionados out there: Put it in a Manhattan, or you're doing it wrong.
In a wide-ranging interview with Yahoo News, the Kentucky Republican refused to take sides in the state's age-old bourbon brand war but did reveal he's partial to the classic Manhattan cocktail, which he called a "terrific drink."
On more serious topics, McConnell bluntly warned that immigration reform will need to include a strong guest worker program if Republicans are to support it and said he has "great skepticism" about the ability of new gun control laws to have any effect on attacks like last year's Sandy Hook massacre.
