The Math of You


Episode 052 - Romance Novels and Quivering Lightning Jelly, feat. Maq Weaver

Ep. 52

Co-host of the Jem Jam and I Will Fight You podcasts Maq Weaver is here to talk about romance novels. Along the way we discuss, we discuss the cutthroat world of cow beauty pageants, a reality show so perfect it may have arrived through divine providence, and simultaneously discover both The Pina Colada Song for Pirates, and the Phantom Menace of Romance Novels.

Signature Cocktail: the Silver Lining

They lived a dangerous masquerade -- and drank with a passion no mask could hide.

1oz vodka
3/4oz lemon juice
3/4oz elderflower liqueur
3oz sparkling water
1/2oz pineapple juice
2oz Viniq

Combine vodka, lemon juice, and elderflower liqueur in a shaker with ice, and shake vigourously for 30 seconds. Strain into an old-fashioned glass, and add sparkling water and pineapple juice, stirring to combine. Pour in Viniq and give one final stir.
