Episode #106 – Year Two in Review (Plus a Major Announcement)

It’s the conclusion of another great year of the Speaking Easy Podcast, and we got into what’s become an annual tradition—having a one or two too many (which, believe it or not, is not our normal “being a better drinker” and having a conversation to ramble off our favorite episodes of the year, what we learned, and what we’re looking forward to.

#105 – Jeff Cioletti and The Drinkable Globe

This was a fun one for us to record, and it was the first time we recorded with a live audience! We had Jeff on our show the first time fairly early and he trusted us enough to a) hang out with us off the air and b) come back on the show.

#104 – Vodka Tasting with Modern Bar Cart

Well, it must be of great surprise that we’d willingly and not compelled by a court somewhere submit ourselves to a vodka tasting, based on how we’ve typically treated vodka on this show. But when our good friend Eric Kozlik, the Chief Executive Officer and Supremely Cool Dude of the Modern Bar Cart, invites us along for a tasting of vodkas of strange origins, we’re at least game to play nicely for a little bit.

Ep #103 – Stocking a Home Bar – Bottle Recommendations

This week Alex & Jordan answer a question we’ve gotten for our entire 2 years, and only ever answered in spurts: what bottle should I pick up? And we try to answer that question with a few of our favorite recurring bottles from our bars.

Episode #102 – Winetails or Wine Cocktails

We know, we know—we haven’t done a wine episode. And this still isn’t it. But we felt that we owed our listeners some version of an episode dedicated to the fruit of the vine, in addition to our Sangria episode, and so we hope we came through with winetails.

Episode #101 – Holiday Cocktails – Second Edition

While Alex really wanted to call this “Holiday-Drinkin’ #2 – Festive Boogaloo” in honor of the best movie about dancing ever (Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo), here is our second edition of Holiday cocktails. Seasons drinking!

Episode #100 – Dessert Cocktails

We’re turning 100! No, that’s not about our age, but this is the Speaking Easy Podcast’s 100th episode! We’re so glad to have made it here, so we are celebrating—with dessert! Dessert cocktails can be a great punctuation to a great meal or a momentous occasion.

Episode #099 – Interview with Blair Reynolds

Blair Reynolds is a devoted drink aficionado and an innovative bartender and a well-loved bar owner based in Portland, Oregon. His dedication to sharing his passion for tropical libations and tiki culture is unmatched.

Episode #097 – Halloween Cocktails

It’s the SPOOKIEST time of the year—and we’re throwing parties! Classing it up a bit can be a bit of a task, but we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve.
