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
Gina and Paul celebrate a full year of putting up with each other by opening their first members box from the Kinsip distillery. The resulting variation on the Manhattan includes an ultra-rare saffron liqueur, maple whisky and special cherries. The duo also discuss proper glassware and look back on their favourite (and least-favourite) cocktails of their first year.
