Welcome to Episode 38: Why are white people. In this episode, Melissa fills us in with a brief history of the Brown Derby, both the drink and the diner. Aimee tells us about the beginnings of corn and how it became every white person’s favorite vegetable.
The Brown Derby cocktail is the featured drink of “Episode 38: Why are white people”. I ended up really enjoying this drink, even if it took a little bit to grow on me. I also made a variation with gin that was DELISH.
