For the last time on Giant Cocktails, it's Happy Hour! Yes it's true, Happy Hour is moving to a new podcast all about cocktails that will be launching soon. It will make way for a new baseball focused episode starting on Opening Day.

In this last episode Matthew presents his original Mixed Feelings. It's an adventurous mix of large flavors tamed by the bubbles of a spritz. Meanwhile Ben is coming with not one, not two, but three(!) original cocktails: The Banana Republic, Sweet Goodbye #1 and Sweet Goodbye #2 as he says goodbye to his month of sweetness. They also discuss how to embrace change and give the best cocktail making tip of all. Recipes below.
