It's Happy Hour! In this episode Matthew gets lost in a Summer Haze, a riff on a recipe he introduced early this summer. Meanwhile Ben goes for style and substance with his version of Martha Stewart's (?) Pineapple Gin Kir cocktail. They also discuss childhood trauma and how to make a cocktail pretty. It's all happening on Happy Hour! Recipes below.
