It's Happy Hour! In the episode Matthew gets bitter and a little bit apocryphal with his original cocktail (Un)Holy Schmitt. Meanwhile Ben breezes in with his Orange Zephyr, a cocktail built from the hidden fruits of his bar to celebrate the unofficial start of summer. They also discuss the flexible power of bitters and forget what day it is. Recipes below.
