Scottie Nell Hughes confused "Molotov cocktail" with "mazel tov" cocktail on CNN

Scottie Nell Hughes confused "Molotov cocktail" with "mazel tov" cocktail on CNN

Scottie Nell Hughes just simultaneously invented a meme and wrote a new verse for the next Kanye West song.

On Sunday night, the Donald Trump supporter and CNN correspondent defended Trump for being critical of Jay Z and Beyoncé's public support for Hillary Clinton, citing Jay and Kanye's 2012 music video for "No Church in the Wild." The music video features a Molotov cocktail, a homemade fire bomb made from flammable liquids like booze. 

But instead of referencing the Molotov cocktail, Hughes spoke of a "mazel tov cocktail." Check out the gaffe in the clip below.

Hughes said the video starts off with "a crowd throwing mazel tov cocktails at police." 

"Mazel tov" is a Jewish phrase that roughly means congratulations or good luck in Yiddish, and the phrase isn't a half-bad name for a boozy beverage. While there's no official recipe for the drink, we've mustered up our very own.

Mazel Tov Cocktail

• 4 parts Manischewitz
• Leftover oil from a cooking sheet of latkes
• An ounce of sweat taken from a teenage boy who had his first slow dance at a Bat Mitzvah
• 1/2 cup broth of that chicken soup recipe passed down from Bubbe
• A year's worth of bottled up guilt collected from missing your mom's Shabbat dinner one too many times

Mix all of the ingredients together in large vessel, serve in Kiddish cups and shout "L'chaim!" before slugging it all down. 

Unsurprisingly, Twitter had a field day with the news correspondent's gaffe. A sampling:

After being called out for her mistake, Hughes chalked the blunder up to being sleep deprived:

In truth, Hughes' blooper was probably just what news viewers needed in this very nerve-wracking, un-funny election.
