Martinis and Conspiracies
Aliens, government corruption, and blood thirsty celebrities, oh my! That's right we're talking Conspiracy theories in this episode with first time guest of the pod, Raegan Hochman! If you know anything about conspiracy theories, you also will know, that there is a ton of information out there, so condensing this into one episode is hard, but we did the best we could! I talk about Area 51 and the mystery surrounding that (which goes back a lot farther than I would have ever thought) and Raegan talks to us about Pizza Gate (which if you don't know what that is...then its a great thing your listening to this episode to better inform yourself.) The themed cocktail of this episode is a Cosmo! Raegan's info is below to follow her on more things! InstagramShopWebsiteBeauty Instagram

The Movies That Made Us...Drink
Yinz ever think about those movies from your childhood that maybe had a huge influence on your, or helped shape you into the person you are today? Well we kinda did, so we decided to make this a topic! We'r'e talking about the movies that we watched as kids that really stood out, the movies we watched as kids that we probably shouldn't have, and the movies that we never truly understood as kids, but then came back to as adults and either made sense of it, or just completely broke down, because some things just hit different when you're older. With newcomer Gabe DeRose and podcast favorite, Hank Fodor, the three of us dive into what our childhoods looked like, and also why we're all just so cool. So. There's that. The themed cocktail of this episode, is the Blue Lagoon (not that that's a a movie that any of us watched as kids...but it is the name of a movie...and I happened to have all the ingredients for it). The Blue Lagoon1.5oz Vodka1/2oz Blue Curacao 4oz LemonadeLemon wheel for a garnish.Mix all ingredients together in a shaker with ice, serve into a chilled martini glass, and garnish with a lemon wedge.

On The Topic Of Recovery Part 2
365 days later, I got to sit down with Daniel and Tara Quarcoo for part two of their journey. One year after the crime/accident that would change their lives forever, we talk about the road to recovery, the struggles, the accomplishments, and the milestones that they've seen, shared, and overcome. On June 15th, 2021, Daniel was crossing the street, and was hit by a car, who then proceeded to flee the scene and leave him for dead. But after persevering, and kicking death square in the big hairy dick, DQ talks with us about where's at, one year later. "Sometimes when you think you're in a dark place, you think that you've been buried, but actually you've been planted."For more on DQ, click here

ALWAYS Say Gay
I told you I would cover it. We are talking HB 1557, now more commonly known as the "Don't Say Gay" Bill in Florida, recently signed by "Gov" Ron DeSantis. With guest, and newly appointed, Making A Martini Legal Consultant, Lance McFadden, we talk about the construction of the bill, what it means, all the things wrong with it, and whether or not it is constitutional. There is a link to read the bill for yourself (it's only seven pages so like...read it) and also links to resources for parents with children that identify/belong to the LGBTQIA+ community, as this bill and Florida's pre-existing sexual education laws are trying to erase their stories from the narrative 💁🏼♂️ The themed cocktail of this episode is the "See You Later, Litigator."See You Later, Litigator3oz Gin1oz Mint Infused Simple Syrup1/2oz of St. GermaineMix all ingredients in a shaker with ice and serve in a chilled martini glass.

Trick Or Martini
Happy Halloween you drunk fools! On a particularly spooky episode of Making A Martini, we take a look at some of the history of Halloween. And I say some, because there is literally so much, so I had to cut it down. But guest star Brianna Woods and I are talking origins of trick or treating, costumes, jack-o-lanterns, and more. Then we talk some of our favorite Halloween traditions, favorite movies, favorite candy, etc. The themed cocktail of this episode is the Candy Corn Martini.Candy Corn Martini6oz Cake Vodka1/4 cup Candy Corn3/4 cup Pineapple Juice3/4 cup heavy creamHalloween sprinklesCorn SyrupCombine vodka and candy corn in jar and let sit for six hours. Afterwards, create rim for martini glass with corn syrup and halloween sprinkles. Strain vodka, and the recipe says to get rid of the candy corn...I say do what you want with it (eat it). Pour vodka into two separate martini glasses evenly. Then, layer the pineapple juice on top, pouring over a spoon. Then layer the heavy cream in the same way.Alternate: Mix vodka, pineapple juice, and heavy cream together in a shaker, if you don't feel like layering, because its f**king hard.
