Tim steps out from behind the scenes to swap a scandal with us. We learn about the history of the brandy-based concoction known as the Sidecar and how it links to the era of Stephanie’s scandal.This cocktail is a spirited, elegant way to wrap up the year! Cheers to 2020 almost being over y’all!

STEPHANIE examines the assasination of Fred Hampton, the first high-profile case of police brutality in American history.  We raise a glass, to the Fred Hampton quote— You can jail the revolutionaries, but you can’t jail the revolution. Power to the people!
