Five Osama Bin Laden Cocktails

On Sunday night, President Obama told the world that Osama Bin Laden, the leader behind our nation's most horrific terrorist attacks on 9/11, had been killed in a special operation by Navy SEALs.

While most deaths aren't celebrated, Bin Laden ain't your average situation. We've been hunting this guy for nearly a decade, and throngs of people continue to wave flags at both the White House and Ground Zero in Manhattan.

In any event, this is a great time to toast our military, who continue to fight for our country.

We found some interesting cocktail recipes, suitable for toasting the end of a madman's reign:
