It's Happy Hour! In this episode Matthew is making native San Franciscans pucker with a classic Frisco Sour. Ben is getting into old time elixirs with the forgotten classic, the Monkey Gland. They also debate which spirit they would keep above all others and then advise on how a master of one cocktail is really the master of many. Recipes below.
