Episode 25: Diners, Drive Ins, and All-American Dumpster Fires (aka Diners and American Politics)

Welcome to episode 25! If you thought we were a wee bit too drunk last episode, well, too bad, because this episode is off the rails. Also, Melissa’s audio in the beginning of this episode is janky, and we have no idea why! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ We’re killing it.

Melissa rocks some fun facts about America and alcohol, while Aimee explains the relationship between American diners and politics.

Recipe: All-American Dumpster Fire Punch

The All-American Dumpster Fire Punch is the featured cocktail in Episode 25 “Diners, Drive-Ins, and All-American Dumpster Fires” aka “Diners and American Politics”. This drink is a crowd-pleaser that can be altered to fit your specific guests’ tastes. Make a big batch and be sure to serve it in red solo cups. It’s the American way!

This recipe serves to, be sure to scale as appropriate. Be careful with this one. It will knock you on your ass and not even help with the medical bills (just like America)!

Ingredients:
4 oz. White Rum
4 oz. Vodka
2 oz. Blue Curacao
2 oz. Peach Schnapps
2 oz. Cranberry Juice
2 oz. Orange Juice
Sprite to top (alternatively, use soda water/seltzer if you think this will be too sweet, it was for me and soda water made all the difference)

Directions:
Combine all ingredients, except the bubbly, in a pitcher or punch bowl. Distribute evenly in red solo cups. Top with Sprite.

Enjoy!

Episode 24: Melissa Made Herself a Margarita (aka China’s Wet Markets)

Welcome to episode 24! In this episode Melissa and Aimee, sans Kate, talk about China’s Wet Markets and the rise of grocery stores in the West. This episode was recorded on National Margarita Day and the dishes might be a bit tipsy before it even starts and go off topic quite a bit. Melissa tells us all about the fruit of the Lychee tree and the four beauties of ancient China, and Aimee thoroughly grosses everyone out.

Recipe: Mama Fuckin’ Lychee

Recipe: Mama Fuckin’ Lychee

Mama Fuckin’ Lychee is the featured cocktail of episode 24 “Melissa Made Herself a Margarita”. It is named in honor of Amanda Jacobson from the Wine and Crime podcast.

The recipe below differs slightly from the one made in the episode. I improved it by blending it with ice and removing the straining step.

Ingredients:
2 oz. Rum (we used Appleton Estate)
1 oz. Cherry Brandy
1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4-1/2 oz. Maraschino Liqueur (we used Luxardo)
1/4 oz. Lychee Syrup, if canned (if not canned use Agave)
3 Lychee Fruit
2 small handfuls of ice

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender. Blend until smooth and pour into a glass. Garnish with a lychee fruit and maraschino cherry.
Enjoy!
