We kick off this episode with “The Dish”. As always, we discuss politics and how they affect our community among other topics… School is in session for a special someone that needs a bit of a history lesson. We welcome to the show Activist, Author and writer of “Savage Love”, the amazing Dan Savage. His Podcast LoveCast is available on iTunes (Click Here). We dedicate this episode to Peter O. Gonzalez-Cruz, 22 years old who perished in the shooting at Club Pulse in Orlando Florida. We sip on a signature cocktail for this episode…The GGG #2, which stands for “Good, Giving and Game”, also known as a, Gin, Ginger, and Grape-Based Spirit.
Our angel for this episode:
GGG Cocktail #2 (Gin Ginger Gimlet)
Courtesy of Rhachel Shaw, Rye, San Francisco
1 ½ oz. Overproof Gin, such as Leopold’s Navy Strength
¾ oz. King’s Ginger liqueur
¾ oz. Sutton Cellars vermouth
2 dashes celery bitters (Rhachel used the Bitter Truth brand – the only other brand I know is Scrappy’s, and I think one dash of its product would be plenty)
Stir with cracked ice; strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
