What’s a Mazel Tov cocktail, you ask? That’s the No. 1 question the Internet is asking after Donald Trump surrogate, Scottie Nell Hughes, slammed Hillary Clinton supporter, Jay Z, for throwing ‘Mazel Tov’ cocktails at police in a music video. Watch and see the hilarious tweets making fun of her here!
Scottie Nell Hughes was voicing her support for Donald Trump, 70, on CNN Nov. 6, when she completely mispronounced a word — and she’ll pretty much never live it down! While discussing how Jay Z, 46, has been campaigning for Hillary Clinton, 69, the Trump supporter meant to point out the rapper features ‘Molotov’ cocktails in one of his music videos, but instead, she said, ‘Mazel Tov cocktails,’ and the Internet finds it absolutely hilarious.
Twitter immediately flooded with people poking fun at Scottie for misspeaking, and we’re absolutely cracking up over the reaction messages. Between sending in fake recipes and totally mocking Scottie for the mistake, people were absolutely killin’ it with their tweets. Check out a few here:
Hope everyone is prepared for the mazel tov cocktail drink specials that are about to hit hipster bars everywhere.

When someone pointed out the error to Scottie, she tweeted a response of her own, taking ownership for the mistake. “Trust me.. I realized at that moment, I should have taken a nap at some point the last 24 hrs,” she wrote.
Alright, so Scottie is clearly blaming the situation on her lack of sleep, but it’s still a pretty embarrassing blunder! And things got even worse for the journalist when she tweeted out a link to the music video she was talking about using the correct term, Molotov, and those mocking her wrote comments back like, “Are you sure it’s not a Mazel Tov cocktail?” LOL! This is too much!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Scottie calling it a ‘Mazel Tov’ cocktail? Do you think the Internet took this too far?
