This week we’re talking to food and drinks writer, Jason Horn about his most recent story as drinks contributor for Playboy magazine. The article, titled "Drinking at the Bottom of the World", is about the bars, booze and drinking culture at McMurdo Station, a US-run scientific research station in Antarctica. His article is to be published next month in so this interview is actually an exclusive! In any case, it’s a fun one. I hope you enjoy!

This Week's Recipe:

McMurdo Mule - served in a highball glass with ice
3 ounces of Jameson Whiskey
4 ounces of Mac’s Ginger Beer or Bunderberg is a good replacement 
1 lime wedge (for authenticity, you can use bottled lime juice but I don’t think we have to go that far)

Fill your highball with ice. Add the whiskey & a squeeze of lime and drop in the glass. Then add the ginger beer and give it a good stir. Pretty sure a garnish is not necessary in this low maintenance high ball. So just enjoy.
