Hello, dear listeners! It’s me, Rev. I got to co-host this fine episode and Andy and I were graced with the company of the iconic Susan Meagher (it’s pronounced Mah-her). The entire show was a pure delight – from the delicious Old Fashioned to the discussion of the decline of the old Xenaverse community. I can’t even begin to recap all of the things we chatted about; we were all over the place but all of it was relevant. I know, that’s a shock, but I think it’s true. Some of it’s a haze because of the booze but I remember laughing a lot so that’s got to be a good sign, right?
Be sure to check out Susan’s website (http://www.susanxmeagher.com) and the Brisk Press site where you can buy all of her books (and Starting From Scratch by Georgia Beers) in print or ebook (http://www.briskpress.com).
Susan suggested the drink and here’s the recipe I used:
2 ozÂ bourbon whiskey
2 dashesÂ AngosturaÂ® bitters
1 splashÂ water
1 tspÂ sugar
1Â maraschino cherry
1Â orangeÂ wedge
Mix sugar, water, and angostura bitters in an old-fashioned glass. Drop in a cherry and an orange wedge. Â Muddle into a paste using a muddler or the back end of a spoon. Pour in bourbon, fill with ice cubes, and stir. I topped mine off with water and added an extra orange slice and a couple extra cherries.
I hope you all enjoy the show as much as I did. And don’t forget, feed those bards!!
