Episode 063 - Indiana Jones and Labrador Face, feat. Dr. Daniel Binns

Ep. 63

Writer, filmmaker and teacher Dr. Daniel Binns is here to talk about letting Indiana Jones into your life. Along the way, we discuss a perfect sequence of cinema, how to make a proper adventure movie, and the long career of noted Harrison-Ford-puncher Pat Roach.

Signature Cocktail: The Ravenwood

This is a drink that knows how to show someone a good time. Boy, it’s something.

1 1/2oz blended scotch*

1oz grapefruit juice

1/2 oz lemon juice

3 dashes Mr. Bitters Fig & Cinnamon Bitters**

1 tsp demerara or brown sugar

1 dash soda water

citrus peel for garnish

Combine sugar and bitters in a rocks glass and stir until sugar dissolves. Add juices, scotch, and soda water, add a large ice cube, and spin the glass twice. Twist a citrus peel over the drink, rub along the edge of the glass, and serve.

*specifically something middle of the road. Nothing too fancy (your 10-year-old Laphroaig will drown in these big flavours), but not bottom shelf garbage either. 

**If you can’t get this, see if you can find Brooklyn Hemispherical Black Mission Fig Bitters. It’s available in the US and Australia.
