It’s all about the aliens this week as Ginny and Charlie debate whether or not society should reach out to the stars to make first contact. In addition, Charlie has some wild stories to tell from Gem City Comic Con, we learn what Ginny has been up to, a victorian punch is shared and some NPR approved music is sampled. All in a Tonic days work and we invite you to sit back, toast yourselves and enjoy!
(Segment Begins 48 Minutes and 33 Seconds Into The Show)
1750-milliliter bottle gin
½cup orange liqueur
1liter seltzer, chilled.
Use a vegetable peeler to peel long strips of pith-free skin from the lemons. Place peels in a bowl, add sugar, muddle vigorously and allow to steep 2 to 3 hours. Juice lemons to obtain 3/4 cup. Pour lemon juice over peels and stir to dissolve sugar. Transfer to a 3-quart pitcher half-filled with ice.
Add gin, liqueur and seltzer. Stir and pour into punch cups or short-stemmed glasses, and serve.
