Episode 120 All Inclusive Experiences

In today's episode we take a break from our normal schedule and talk about our previous and upcoming trips in All Inclusive Resorts/Cruises.

Andrea talks about her times visiting various resorts with different levels of inclusivity, as well as her upcoming trip with her spouse to a wonderful resort in Mexico.

Aaron talks about his past and upcoming Cruises, as well as the sweet shirt you can see to the left!

Also, since we never really looked it up during the episode, the point at which a boat becomes a ship is: A ship is any vessel or conveyance that floats on or operates on the water and is equal to or larger than 197 feet (60 meters) length overall (LOA). A ship may be used for pleasure, commercial, or residential purposes.

So now you all know the difference, and can feel superior in your nautical knowledge!

Recipe: Chill a tumbler with ice and Absinthe while you mix the rest of the cocktail.
Add 1.75 Oz Rye Whiskey, .5 Oz Dark Simple Syrup, and a dash of Angostura bitters to a cocktail shaker with ice and mix well.
