We're Back! Vol. 2: The Quick Tangent

So just how many hiatus restarts can one podcast do? Only time will tell - but we’re back and ready to get things going again! In this episode we catch up on what’s going on in life, zip through some 2020 complaints, and then take a not-so-quick quick tangent. And during our tangent we will discuss some great new offerings from Heirloom Liqueurs: Micah announces his love for Pineapple Amaro, Dinger praises an incredible Genepy, and Wo experiments with Alchermes Liqueur - PLUS - the Always Parched hosts make a bunch of promises that they may or may not be able to keep!

Quarantine, Catching Up, and Cocktails

Where Are You and What Are You Drinking

Social distancing can’t keep these two friends from enjoying a drink and talking cocktails. In this episode Wo and Micah (Dinger is out doing real work) get together online to catch up on life, share stories from an eventful week, and ask the big questions like - whatcha drinking, buddy? Our late night recording features home bar bottle strategies (both the adding to and eliminating of booze), multiple shout-outs to Hangar One vodka, helping your favorite local establishments, tackling super challenging recipes from the Aviary, a dad hack, and growing old - PLUS - should you order a manhattan at every bar you go to… we’ve got the answer!
