I am so incredibly excited to announce the new and (hopefully!) improved Gin and Beer It podcast. In 2018, I started Gin and Beer It as a way of documenting my experiences of moving to London as an American and all of the people I have met, places I have traveled to, and experiences I have had. Over the past 18 months I have covered every topic from dating to buying a flat in London to where to travel in Europe – and it has been a blast. The one challenge I have always had with Gin and Beer It is a consistent theme that ties all of the episodes together and makes listeners want to come back for more. Finally, a few weeks ago I was sitting in my living room listening to a vinyl record and drinking cocktails (who have I become??) and it dawned on me. DRINKING is my common denominator! So, from this point onward, Gin and Beer It will be like the ‘Desert Island Discs of Drinking.’ Each week, I will invite a guest (sometimes just myself – I drink a lot) to discuss a drink that means something to them. The drink can be anything from a cocktail, to a beer, to wine, to a non-alcoholic beverage. We will talk about how to make the drink, the history, why it is important to the guest, and fun variations that you can make. Full disclosure: I am no expert! I have never been a bartender, nor have I have ever even worked in the service industry. I do, however, have nearly a decade of making memories with friends and families around a nice glass of wine or a well made cocktail. My goal is for us to bond over the shared experience of drinking, share stories, experience different cultures, and ultimately to make being a drink enthusiast accessible to all of my listeners. Below is the trailer for the new episode. Please like, share, and subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts! The first episode is going live this Sunday, June 28th, and I can’t wait to have you along for the ride!
