Our 100th Episode: Burning Questions

Our 100th Episode: Burning Questions
Here we are, friends. The 100th episode. To celebrate, we asked each other 100 rapid fire questions. We’ve been friends for a long while, yet we discovered a lot of new things about each other. And a lot of interesting conversations to have another day.

100 rapid fire questions for our 100th episode. We’re talking everything from mom jeans to aliens to weird food combinations. (Jen’s is really weird.) (Honestly, Karen’s is too.)

To be fair, we do dabble in some industry-related questions and heavier topics, but mostly we learned a lot of new interesting things about each other — and ourselves.

Thank you for listening to 100 episodes of our musings and making Speak Easy possible. Now make yourself a La Pina, enjoy our antics, and we’ll see you next time for 101.

La Pina
Mezcal is the cooler older cousin of tequila. He rides a motorcycle. He travels. He always has a story to tell. He’s smoky.

While the combination of ingredients for La Pina is complex, it’s quite easy to drink. The mezcal gives it its bold character. The serrano chile, while seeded, adds a jolt of life, but the assuaging pineapple follows right behind to make sure things don’t get too hectic. This cocktail is not spicy, but it is stimulating.


  • 1 large ice cube, plus more ice cubes for the cocktail shaker
  • 1 slice serrano chile, seeded
  • 5 or 6 fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 oz. Mezcal
  • 1 oz. fresh pineapple juice
  • 3/4 oz. rich simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1 pineapple leaf for garnish


  1. Put the large ice cube in an old-fashioned glass.
  2. Muddle the serrano chile with the cilantro leaves in a cocktail shaker.
  3. Add the mezcal, pineapple juice, simple syrup, lime juice, and ice cubes.
  4. Shake vigorously and strain over the large ice cube in the glass.
  5. Garnish with the pineapple leaf.
