Alie and Georgia are in the studio! They are the hosts for Cooking Channel's Classy Ladies and contributors to Unique Sweets. Tune in as they hang out with Damon and talk about viral videos, female bartenders and lighthearted drinking. They make a delicious on-air cocktail with Aperol, orange juice and beer and somehow manage to get free tequila shots from a listener. Hear what it's like submitting recipes for a TV show and why these girls have fun everywhere they go. This program was sponsored by White Oak Pastures.
