Solar Storms ☀️

Do you know what a solar storm is? Did you know we had some last week? Well... Kendall took a deep dive for us, navigating around some very big science-y words so we can better understand how and why the sun seems to be trying to kill us.

Drink of the Episode: Classic Texas Tea

Ingredients:

Sour Mix (1 ounce lemon juice, 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup)

1/2 ounce vodka

1/4 ounce gin

1/4 ounce rum

1/2 ounce tequila

1/2 ounce whiskey

Splash cola


Pour it all together in a big glass and pray that your liver handles it.
