The Math of You


Episode 059 - The Return of Ginger Turner

Ep. 59

Writer and podcaster Ginger Turner returns to the Math of You. Along the course of this conversation, we take a deep dive into Ginger’s relationship with the Mountain Goats, we consider how not to be that person recommending a podcast, and how old is too old to have stickers on your laptop.

Signature Cocktail: Lovecraft in Brooklyn

I’ll hand you a drink of the lovely little thing upon which our survival depends. Everything's gonna be okay soon. Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day.

2oz gin
1oz lime juice
10 mint leaves, slightly bruised
1oz ginger apple lemon tea syrup*
Soda or sparkling water
Combine all ingredients except soda in a shaker with ice and shake vigourously. Strain into an old fashioned glass with one or two large ice cubes, and top up with soda. For a sweeter drink, replace the sparkling water with lemon-lime soda.

*Combine equal parts water and sugar with a lemon’s worth of peel and a supermarket ginger apple herbal tea bag. Bring to a boil, allow to cool, then strain into a bottle. Keeps for 2 weeks.
