Episode Notes

A note from Stephanie...

I admit that I used to hate the smell of a rye and Coke.

Maybe it's my age now or maybe I just didn't realize that it was probably the cola itself that was turning me off.

I am enjoying whiskey more often - on its own or in classic cocktails and it now becoming my go-to order before dinner...replacing my usual Negroni (for now).

I figured that I wasn't the only one who loved this tipple but didn't know enough about we invited a bar full of people to chat about whiskey ...and then I let Cynthia plan a game.

The rest is history...loud and drunken history. 😉
