Apr 06, 2020, 10:00 AM
This episode we imbibe on the Brandy Smash, a pre-civil war cocktail that is as refreshing as it is classic. Cheers y’all, to smashing good times!

For more info on the Master of Social Gastronomy podcast, the cocktail book Imbibe and the Tubman stamp: 

ALSO DISCUSSED: CVS mini eggs, musical chairs, proto-dragging, public animal abuse, catching people outside, cheap canes to the head, Stephanie’s secret service detail, karma coming for adult babies, level 4 vegans, Tubman stamps, black twitter, and the currency of means.

TUX’s scandal centers upon Charles Sumner, a radical Republican whose anti-slavery convictions and spicy words almost cost him his life in 1856. 

STEPHANIE shines a hard light on Andrew Jackson who scandalously built the Deep South by stealing native land to make way for white settlement and created the region’s minority pull on the levers of power that linger today.
