Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is wrong about a lot of things: She’s wrong about the Green New Deal, wrong about climate doom, wrong about taxes, wrong about Medicare for All, wrong about federal debt and spending, and wrong about plastic bags, just for starters.

But the former bartender is right—so very, very right—about using fresh juice in cocktails.

This is why it’s important to have subject matter experts with real-world experience in Congress, folks.

Okay, okay, I don’t actually want to ban sour mix—and from the wink of her emoji, neither does she—but the stuff is an abomination, and there’s almost never a call for using it in a drink, except possibly to be ironic. 

You should always squeeze fresh citrus for your drinks. This doesn’t need to be a federal law, but it is an important part of my personal code. Try a margarita with fresh lime juice and 100 percent agave tequila on a hot summer day. It’ll change your life

More seriously, if you want to understand AOC’s appeal as a politician and public personality, it’s this: She uses online platforms like Twitter quite effectively by talking about things that are fun and trivial, helping to define her as something more than just another stodgy politician, as well as to draw attention to bigger, bolder, and more important ideas. Like using fresh juice in cocktails.
