It's Happy Hour! In this episode Matthew is getting boozy with his Spirit of Sonoma. It's deep, dark and hiding a delicious secret at the bottom. Meanwhile Ben is washing away the bitter with his Orange You Glad It's Not Bitter. It's simple solid sour that's a precursor for cocktails to come later this month.
