Jen and Erica are starting off the season with a gauntlet! Friend of the show John Mannion, who has his own show John Drinks, sent us a box from Drinks by Dram. The set came with five mini-bottles and we drink them all in a single episode. We plow through:
Results tagged “rum”
Friends of the show Denise and GeorgeGabe went on their honeymoon to the Dominican Republic and found Mama Juana “Aphrodisiac”â€”a mixture of rum, red wine, honey, and herbs. We’re all the richer now that Jen and Erica can try it and report the results.
There’s also a song of the same name, reportedly by one of the first bottlers of Mama Juana.
A friend of the show gave us (well, actually, loaned - she wants the bottle back) this bottle of rum that seems to be largely targeted at tourists in the Bahamas. Which is what she was when she bought it. Will it transport Jen and Erica to a tropical wonderland?
Don’t forget, if you’re in Chicago tonight you can see a live taping of the show at the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival at 11 pm, Stage 773, 1225 W Belmont Ave Chicago, IL. Tickets are still available.
And this week Jen and Erica were interviewed by Monique Madrid for the website Serial Optimist. She made her own video in a location you might recognize.
Our good friend Philip Markle gifted Jen and Erica with a bottle of RumChata, with the not-very-encouraging message “this is the worst thing ever”. Undaunted, and propelled by Erica’s love of horchataâ€“the Mexican rice water and cinnamon drinkâ€“they crack open the bottle and give it a try.
