It's official. No. 4,751 on my never-ending list of things I'd like to do before I leave this mortal coil: drink cocktails with Rachel Maddow. Rachel stopped by Jimmy Fallon's talk show Tuesday night. While I still can't say I've warmed to Fallon's twitchy energy (and, seriously, does he call everyone “pal?”), Rachel was her signature blend of equal parts utterly adorkable and James Bond – cute and cool. Plus, her declaration that “everyone can drink a manlier drink” was priceless. Here is a look at some of Rachel's finest on-air cocktail moments.
“It tastes like hell, on it's own.”
[p.s. International fans see it here.]
On The Rachel Maddow Show
“Oh, thank you, I never get the pretty one.”
On Martha Stewart
“I always travel with the right equipment.”
On Grub Street
“Don't be a wuss about the shaking.”
Rachel, Rachel – you can pour me a nice, tall one anytime. Oh, and a cocktail would be nice, too.
