This week we have return guest, New York-based food, wine, and spirits writer Kara Newman on the show. She discusses her sixth cocktail book, an interactive sort of choose your own adventure book called Cocktails with a Twist. We also invent what we think should be a new classic cocktail, talk about babies making martinis, and our love of vermouth, gin and aquavit. 

This week's cocktail:

'Vit & It - served up in a Nick & Nora glass
2 oz Aquavit 
1 oz Sweet Vermouth
Orange Bitters
garnish: Orange twist
Stir the aquavit and vermouth in an ice-filled mixing glass until sufficiently chilled. Add a few dashes of orange bitters. Strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass. Twist the orange peel over the glass to extract the oils. Garnish and enjoy.
