We’re baaaaaacccccckkkkkkkkkkkk! After a longer than anticipated absence Gina and Paul are back with a Halloween episode, as they try the classic Corpse Reviver No. 1 cocktail. They dig into Calvados apple brandy while donning random seasonal decorations and catching up on recent events.
It’s a belated birthday bash for Gina, as she and Paul get deep into Cognac and brandy. The duo talk about the differences between the two while Paul introduces his mom to Busta Rhymes by way of “Pass the Courvoisier”. Gina also rants about an institution she clearly wants to burn to the ground (at least Paul has fun saying so). All this and just how many times can they say the word “cobbler”?
Another hot drink for a cold day, as Gina and Paul get into some Gluehwein. The duo are still separated by pandemic lockdown measures, but do their best to share recipes of this classic German mulled wine variant, including some brandy, port and whatever else was knocked into the pot. Where will they travel to when this is all over? Who is Gina mad at this time and what does a big sausage have to do with anything?
Gina and Paul are back whether you want them or not. They ring in the first episode of 2020 with a tasty Brandy Alexander cocktail while discussing the difference between brandy and Cognac. Get your earplugs ready, as there may even be a mercifully brief attempt at a singing duet.
Brandy Alexander Recipe:
1 1/2 ounces of Cognac/brandy
1 ounce of dark Crème de Cacao
1 ounce of cream
Mix in a shaker with ice, shake and strain into a coupe
