This week Ginny and Charlie bring you a treat from the Charlie Tonic archives. From her pin-up fabulous hair to her classic tattoo’s, Molly Wellmann is clearly a woman who takes the best of what the past has to offer and gives it her own modern touch. Back in April 2012 when Charlie and I sat down with Cincinnati’s most famous mixologist at her bar Japp’s in Over the Rhine for Episode 15‘s Bottoms Up segment I knew I was in for a treat and I was not disappointed. So sit back and relax as Molly mixes up a martinez, a classic early cocktail that is considered a forerunner of the martini.
