We also talk favorite gins, alternative recipes, and thinking outside the box when it comes to tonic water. 



    A few corrections requested by our guest. 

    Her tequila of choice for the tequila and tonic combination she mentioned is Don Julio not Jose Cuervo. 

    Also, Camp NaNoWriMo is actually April and July, not April and June.
