In this episode we start in the 1980s, a decade rich in the excesses of sugar and money, to discuss the parallel alcoholic trends of the day (spoiler alert: they involve sugar and money). Instead of doing a bunch of artisanal cocaine to celebrate the era of Stephanie’s scandal we opt for a shockingly frou-frou yet surprisingly delicious [episode cocktail](https://www.beyondreproachpod.com/the-cocktails/2018/12/17/episode-5-blue-hawaiian).

This episode we apologize for being the chatty drunk history nerds we were in the last episode.
