In this episode we learn about sneaking booze into Iraq, banana curry cocktails and why Whistle Pig 15yr and Old Weller Antique 107 are floating Mike Stojic and Maleah Christie's boat. We get into some heavy vetting... of cocktails that is. We also eat booze filled ice cream and discuss why Johnson County and specifically Clayton, NC are rad! _________________________________________________
