Prolific author Melissa Good was our extra special guest for this episode. Â She was just back from the not-so-final Xena Con so we got lots of info on what was going on there – including the Con Crud she contracted. Her illness and Andy’s non-drinking left me, Rev, the sole imbiber. The mojito was delish! I’d never had one before and the rum hit me like a ton of bricks. All I could taste was the lime. I’m thankful that I only had one or else I would have passed out before we said goodbye. Although, I don’ t think Andy let us say goodbye anyway. She’s like that, you know.
We had a great chat about Ms. Good’s vast collection of online and published work, as well as her involvement in writing a couple of Xena episodes in the 6th season of the show and the Xenaverse.
If you’re a fan of Melissa Good’s work, you definitely don’t want to miss this one! And be sure to check out her website (http://www.merwolf.com) for loads and loads of great stuff to read.
Here’s the recipe for the Mojito Martini I enjoyed:
2 ozÂ lime juice
1/2 tspÂ sugar
Wet the rim of a cocktail glass and press down in sugar to get it on the rim. Put mint leaves and lime juice (perÂ drink) in a cocktail shaker. Mash (“muddle”) the mint with spoon. Add light rum and ice. Shake, strain, pour. If it’s too tart, add sugar to the shaker.
