In Podcast #4 Eliah and Will find out what its like to descend into the murky bliss of drinking an entire bottle of Boyd and Blair vodka.  We deliberately chose spirit forward cocktails that would showcase the versatility and harmony of this incredible spirit.  This beautiful and refined potato based vodka draws out the raw and distinct nature of  crafting cocktails, as well as the open and free flow of discussion.  It brings front and center the deliciousness of what a cocktail can be, as well as the origins of these libations, which are revealed in this podcast.  So in other words; stories ensue!  Discussions of hateful hipsters and the perils of driving in Los Angeles, the failure of the Mayweather VS Pacquiao showdown, the magic of gomme simple syrup, Beyoncé, the new Star Wars, Mad Max, Ex Machina, And the trouble with finishing off the entire bottle of Boyd & Blair.  For real, or fake.
