#1 Martini: Romantic Safari Happy Hours, Carrie Nation, Yoohoo Wine

February 27, 2018

Welcome to the Sundowners Podcast. We’re so excited to launch our very first episode, and to get us started, we tackle the classiest of all beverages: the Martini. Although the origin of the martini isn’t known for sure, there are a few speculations, which we cover after a brief introduction to the podcast. For those who don’t know, a “sundowner” is an African safari tradition, in the most romantic sense, in which, at sundown, a picnic blanket is laid, drinks are poured, and company is shared. As we prepare to send Hailey off to Africa, we decided to launch this podcast as a project to keep us connected while she’s overseas – and what better way than to share a happy hour drink over a video chat? We’d likely already be doing this anyway, so we’ve decided to hit record and see where this podcast takes us.


Classic Martini Recipe:

2 OUNCES GIN

1 OUNCE DRY VERMOUTH

2 DASHES ORANGE BITTERS

GARNISH: LEMON PEEL
