Episode 90: Making a Monkey Out of Us – Monkey Gland

We have done a number of episodes that have taken us into the realm of gross. Sometimes it is the ingredients, sometimes it is the backstory, sometimes it is because we are gross. The Monkey Gland is a special one because hits on all three!

Join us as we break down the why Harry MacElhone and not Frank Meier created this drink, how the drink was used as a defense in a trial, and how this drink was named after some very weird virility experiments involving, you guessed it, monkey glands.

The recipe is:

  • 1 ½ ounces dry gin
  • 1 ½ ounces orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine
  • 1 teaspoon absinthe
