A Book and A Cocktail

EP64_Drinks and Dictionaries

Episode Summary

Our book is the same but the cocktails are different

Episode Notes

This week we discuss The Professor and the Madman: a tale of murder, insanity, and the making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester.  Winchester brings his literary magic to the incredible story of two men and the creation of the OED. You’ll never look at your dictionary the same way again!!! Although we read the same book, we are each having our own cocktails. Gretchen was feeling creative and is drinking a “soon to be named” cocktail with grapefruit, cranberry and other good stuff; Penny is drinking Rum and Ting  (her favorite Jamaican grapefruit soda) and Michaela is drinking a classic Negroni.  Join us!
