The brand of whiskey is still undecided but newly elected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said over the weekend that the bourbon summit is a go and he still plans to have a drink or two Democratic President Barack Obama.

One day after his party lost control of the U.S. Senate, Obama told reporters he would like to share some Kentucky bourbon with McConnell, according to The Associated Press.

The invitation was quickly dubbed the bourbon summit and has received lots of attention as the two leaders prepare to either work with or against each other for the final two years of Obama's presidency.

McConnell told state party leaders on Saturday the bourbon summit would happen, although he said picking the brand of bourbon would be like picking which daughter he loves the most.

McConnell said whether the summit is nothing more than a public relations gimmick remains to be seen.
