00:20
But welcome back to IB.
00:21
I am Alejandro. I'm Jenny.
00:23
It's weird. But anyways,
00:25
we have a great show for you today as always,
00:27
you know. Do you have AT&T no,
00:30
brother. I have T Mobile.
00:31
Oh, thank God.
00:32
Because one of the stories is actually AT&T service was down.
00:35
We have Bite Gate,
00:37
starring Biden's dog opinions,
00:39
biting people,,
00:40
student loans update. Oh Snap.
00:43
Well, we're jumping into National Margarita Day,
00:46
which was this week and bilingual personalities.
00:49
Ok. And Acne Hacks,
00:52
brother Acne. You.
00:53
No, but I did.
00:55
Yeah, I, I had in the past so that'd be
00:57
good, Acne Hacks and Gen Z Sling,
01:00
dude swag. Is that still Gen Z?
01:04
I can't keep up no more guys.
01:06
We're gonna get coached.
01:07
So that'll be good.
01:07
Yeah, it's gonna be a great show guys.
01:09
So. All right.
01:10
Well, fam, let's get into it.
01:16
Can you hear me now?
01:20
They probably can't because they have AT&T oh,
01:22
shit. Yeah. Well,
01:25
if you guys haven't heard AT&T S Network went down for many
01:29
of its customers across the United States Thursday morning leaving customers unable
01:35
to place calls, text or access.
01:38
The internet AT&T claimed that the outer is due to a software
01:42
update but the company affirmed to the customers that it wasn't due
01:48
to a cyber attack or any kind of hacks as people were
01:51
you know, speculating.
01:52
Well, this is only the beginning.
01:55
I think this was a trial run.
01:57
And will the internet or power be next?
02:00
Well, it's like that movie on Netflix.
02:02
Was it leave the world behind?
02:04
Like, were they completely disconnected?
02:06
Like, I mean,
02:08
there's movies about it and AT&T completely went down.
02:10
Wasn't there like an outage on Amazon,
02:12
like couple like last year where like nothing was usable?
02:18
Oh my God. You know who the real losers were during
02:23
this whole outage arts and our mom,
02:27
they love to send those good morning messages.
02:28
They're probably freaking out like whatsapp.
02:30
No, I can't send those like teddy bear saying good morning
02:34
Exactly. Oh,
02:37
my brother, I don't know about you but you know what
02:40
sister? Let's have a moment of silence for all those chain
02:42
messages that didn't make it and we're back.
02:49
But look, I don't have AT&T,
02:51
I have T Mobile because for that reason,
02:53
right? Shout out AT&T not really.
02:56
If I were you guys,
02:58
I would call and Karen out and be like,
02:59
hey, I couldn't call,
03:01
I couldn't send my whatsapp messages in the morning to my Miko
03:03
that in it. In California.
03:05
I need a refund.
03:07
I need an iphone.
03:08
I need a free month of direct TV.
03:10
Is that what they have now?
03:10
Direct TV? I don't have AT&T I just said it because
03:13
of the show, but I actually have T Mobile,
03:16
but we'll give you another chance.
03:17
But tell us the truth.
03:20
What really happened to AT&T a TN technical difficulties?
03:25
Enough of that outage.
03:26
Let's get out of here.
03:28
Next story. Did you ever have a dog that just didn't
03:32
listen? Well, President Biden's pup appears to be one of
03:38
those dogs. We don't even got a pup.
03:40
That's a big boy.
03:41
I've seen pictures of that.
03:42
That's a big dog.
03:43
Look at. Not a pup.
03:47
Exactly. But,,
03:49
so according to a newly released secret service emails,
03:53
they've been planning on how to keep people safe from this dog
03:55
because it's getting that bad commander,
04:00
the dog bit secret service agents about 24 times,
04:04
which is more than previously disclosed.
04:07
So I guess the emails aren't really working well.
04:09
Homeboy can't read first of all,
04:11
but I don't know if the trainers maybe just,
04:13
aren't relaying the message to the dog.
04:15
And so 24 times.
04:17
Damn. Who's he,
04:22
Bill? Dude? He looks like he's gonna take us,
04:25
you know what? Maybe there's something there because like this dog
04:30
has been trained pretty well.
04:31
They don't take him to Petco to get trained.
04:33
They took him to some very top tier secret service training academy
04:37
and 24 times. I think maybe he knows something that we
04:40
don't. Who is he biting?
04:41
That is true. Biting.
04:43
Biden because you get it bit biting and biting.
04:47
Huh? Never mind.
04:49
You didn't get it.
04:49
No. Sorry.,
04:50
bi bit in biting biting.
04:53
So, he's only been secret service agents.
04:56
What does he know that we don't?
04:58
He smells sketchy shit going on?
05:02
Oh, for sure.
05:03
For sure. For sure.
05:04
He knows, like,
05:05
like that dog, you know what they say about dogs?
05:07
Do dogs are the biggest cheese muscles and this dude has found
05:11
some serious cheese in it,
05:11
but he just can't communicate it with everybody and he's barking.
05:14
It's like, shut up.
05:16
It's like, bro,
05:16
I'm trying to protect you.
05:18
Is there sketchy or whoever else?
05:20
I don't know, but we'll,
05:22
we'll be updating on,
05:24
on what this dog knows,
05:27
hopefully in the future.
05:29
I mean, I just feel like the secret service has got
05:31
it rough. Yeah,
05:32
I don't know, dude,
05:33
there's something there. Why does everyone laugh at?
05:36
You're joking? Not mine.
05:37
They weren't even laughing.
05:38
They were groaning and they're like,
05:39
oh, that's funny.
05:45
Hey, did you hear about Biden's,
05:47
loan forgiveness thing that's going on?
05:49
No. Well, I mean,
05:50
I've heard of it but it keeps going back and forth,
05:52
back and forth. Exactly.
05:54
Well, it sounds like it's back again and for good because
05:57
well, Puerto,
05:58
see, so originally,
06:00
like you said, it was back and forth right after the
06:02
Supreme Court blocked Biden's,
06:04
you know, forgiveness plan for student debt.
06:07
His administration explored other alternatives to kind of bring it back
06:11
Right. And it sounds like we have a success story
06:15
in that here and it sounds like their plan is gonna work
06:20
So essentially his team wants 100 $38 billion for nearly 4
06:24
million people. Right.
06:25
And what does you save plan?
06:27
If someone borrowed less than 12 K for college,
06:29
they can get it all forgiven within 10 years of payments.
06:32
But how like, how can you tell if you're eligible?
06:35
Because I know some people like that.
06:36
I, I talked to some friends of mine and they're like
06:38
oh, no,
06:39
but I'm not eligible.
06:40
But like, how can you tell?
06:41
So to find out if you're eligible,
06:43
you actually receiving a email from President Biden himself,
06:46
maybe not him, but his team,
06:47
right, letting you know,
06:48
hey, you're eligible for this new safe plan.
06:51
And it's funny because,
06:53
it seems a little more low key and his team
06:55
is worried that people aren't gonna know that,
06:57
hey, he's doing this dope stuff for you guys as you
07:00
know, it's a,
07:00
you know, election year.
07:01
So all the, you know,
07:02
he's all the brownie points,
07:04
I think. Yes.
07:05
Yes, I agree.
07:06
I think if he does this,
07:07
he'll definitely be in a little more of the good graces,
07:12
you know, with,
07:13
with, with people that went to college and that need the
07:17
help. We just have to see.
07:18
Hopefully this isn't, it is all wishy wash in the,
07:21
in the past. Hopefully this moves forward because it kind of
07:24
sucks to, you know.
07:25
Oh, we're doing it.
07:26
We're not, we're doing it.
07:27
We're not, you know,
07:28
kind of getting them excited to the point where you don't believe
07:31
it anymore. Oh,
07:31
ok. Again, we'll see,
07:33
we'll keep you posted.
07:40
Sister. That sounds like a Boomer.
07:41
But sometimes this Gen Z thing is little.
07:45
I don't know. I don't get it.
07:47
I don't get it.
07:47
Like, I'm like,
07:48
do they still use like lol like laugh out loud?
07:51
Is that even a thing anymore?
07:52
Like, and then like their stuff?
07:54
I'm just like, what does that even mean?
07:56
I feel so old and I'm just in my thirties,
07:59
you know, the thing is I don't,
08:00
I don't say, oh,
08:01
I don't know that I'll,
08:02
I'll go on. Yeah.
08:05
Yeah, I got you,
08:06
bro. And that way I don't feel so out of the
08:08
loop or I go through the comments to get the context.
08:11
Yes. Or I google it.
08:14
Well, brother, luckily we're bringing in our Gen Z friend
08:18
Fabio Capri to tell us what's hot and what's not,
08:23
yo you, is that what they say?
08:28
Is that what they say?
08:29
He, he's crazy,
08:32
bro. He's crazy.
08:33
Oh my God. OK.
08:35
Hey, hey, you're cut up,
08:36
bro. That's, that's crazy.
08:38
That's crazy. I don't even need to tell you anything.
08:41
I'm caught up. How do you do fellow kids?
08:47
Hey, before we get into the actual sling,
08:50
how, how old are you?
08:51
Just so people know,
08:52
like, because I'm 31.
08:53
And how old are your sister?
08:54
Oh, well, 3032.
08:56
Yeah. 2. 32.
08:58
31. How old are you?
08:59
I'm 27. 27.
09:00
Ok, cool. So,
09:01
we're not too far off,
09:02
right. I'm messing with you.
09:04
I'm, I'm, I'm messing with you though.
09:05
I'm messing with you.
09:05
I'm not 27. I always just tell me what,
09:07
like that was a joke,
09:08
but I just turned 21 recently.
09:11
He had six years to himself a whole decade.
09:15
I, I know you're a super viral on tiktok.
09:17
So obviously that's a whole another like sphere of the internet that
09:20
you're gonna bring into this.
09:21
So if you're OK with it,
09:22
we're gonna ask you to break some down for us.
09:24
You ready? OK.
09:26
I'm cool with that.
09:26
You wanna start off?
09:28
What is moots mot?
09:32
Is it moots? Moots?
09:34
OK. So M moots is just,
09:36
it's just like a word that we use when somebody follows you
09:41
back, you follow somebody and they follow you back.
09:43
That's a mutual, a mutual,
09:46
it's like somebody that has a mutual friend on the internet.
09:50
So your moots, bro,
09:54

09:56
No, it makes sense.
09:58
Now when you explain it.

Ok, dude, Tenia Mucho Acne.
15:31
She had a lot of acne one day.
15:34
It just disappeared. She had a porcelain doll face and I
15:36
asked her, I'm like,

15:51
put it on my face for 30 minutes and don't forget guys
15:53
It's the first piss of the day.
15:55
The first piss of the day.
15:56
It has to be fresh and clean.
15:58
Well, don't try this at home.
15:59
I'm not saying I'm not,
16:00
I'm not saying you should do it,
16:02
but this is what she did.
16:03
And dude, it went away like obviously you clean your,
16:06
wash your face after you don't keep it on all day.
16:08
But I'm saying, dude,
16:10
it went away instead of my mint toothpaste,
16:13
you told me to put piss on my face.
16:16
You know what? Maybe can we just get a professional in
16:18
here to talk about this?
16:19
Well, brother, we have Doctor Rebecca Vasquez,
16:23
a dermatologist and teacher to help pop some myths that our parents
16:28
have taught us. Ok.
16:29
Well, I'm gonna take this off then because it's burning.
16:31
So maybe she might be giving me some better here.
16:35
Welcome, Rebecca. Hello.
16:38
Thanks so much for having me.
16:39
Thank you for coming on and helping us with this.
16:43
Absolutely. Absolutely happy to answer any and all of your questions
16:48
Well, we wanna know first and foremost,
16:50
does toothpaste help get rid of pimples?
16:53
Like does it really help?
16:55
Unfortunately, while it is thought to be a really sort of
16:59
inexpensive treatment for acne,
17:01
it probably causes more harm than good.
17:04
The idea behind I think some people using you know,
17:08
toothpaste is that it does have some antibacterial effects.
17:13
But the problem is is that it's not really targeting the bacteria
17:17
that actually are involved in acne in some ways it can actually
17:21
make the acne worse.
17:23
for some people who have sensitive skin,
17:25
toothpaste can actually cause a chemical burn.
17:28
So that leads to more retinas and irritation.
17:31
It was never meant to be put on the skin.
17:33
So, unfortunately, no,
17:34
that's, that's not,
17:36
that's, that explains why I'd be sizzling.
17:39
I feel like it's burning and I'm gonna probably have to
17:42
actually walk Mya commercial style just like splash,
17:46
put a good moisturizer on that thing right away.
17:49
We've heard of VX also this VX.
17:52
So the thing about Vix is it has eucalyptus oil and it
17:57
has Khor in it.
17:58
And it also basically has petroleum,
18:00
which is basically Vaseline,
18:02
right? Essentially the eucalyptus oil and the Camphor,
18:07
they have anti-inflammatory cooling effects.
18:10
So it can temporarily probably get rid of some of that
18:14
inflammation, but it's,
18:15
it's only for a while.
18:17
And so it's not,
18:18
again, it's not targeting the problem.
18:20
So a lot of people say,
18:20
oh, it makes my face look better,
18:22
but really it's not gonna go away.
18:24
It's probably just a couple of minutes where you may notice in
18:26
improvement, but then you're going to have to keep applying it
18:28
right? So it's not something that I would recommend.
18:31
What like myth. Well,
18:34
I mean, if it works for myth,
18:36
but what hack actually works for acne,
18:39
it's not necessarily a myth,
18:41
but there is an idea that chocolate can actually worsen acne,
18:44
right? There's actually some chocolate that might be good for your
18:47
skin. And that's dark chocolate.
18:49
So dark chocolate has antioxidants in it.
18:53
That really what they do is they help get rid of free
18:56
radicals. Free radicals are actually produced from sun exposure.
18:59
And sometimes it can cause your skin to become a little bit
19:02
more dull, maybe discolored.
19:05
And so it can actually help with the tone of your skin
19:08
So in reality,
19:09
what people should know,
19:10
it's actually the sugars that make up whatever you're eating.
19:13
So we call them high glycemic foods.
19:17
That's like white bread,
19:19
that's like fries. You told me that Reese's pieces wasn't helping
19:23
But anyway, no.
19:27
And do you have some advice for like actual tips for fighting
19:30
Acne that are maybe like home remedies or just even like,
19:33
I don't know grandmas that you recommend.
19:35
The thing about acne is you really just need to keep it
19:39
simple. It has nothing to do with really dirty skin,
19:42
it has nothing to do with poor hygiene.
19:43
We know it's genetic.
19:44
Sometimes it tends to run in family members.
19:47
What you wanna do is is use a gentle cleanser in the
19:50
morning to get rid of any oil on the skin.
19:53
And then you need to just follow with a moisturizer afterwards and
19:57
then a sunscreen. Sometimes acne can leave blemishes behind.
20:00
These brown discolored spots would sometimes bother people more than the acne
20:04
because it, it takes forever to go away.
20:06
So if you use a sunscreen that will help prevent those blemishes
20:10
from sticking around. Well,
20:11
thank you so much.
20:12
We really appreciate you coming on Doctor Rebecca and where can
20:16
people find you? Yeah.
20:19
So I actually have I'm on Instagram at Dra Depierre.
20:24
is, is my Instagram handle.
20:26
I work at Dallas in Dallas at UT Southwester.
20:29
So if you all,
20:30
you know, wanna come and see me,
20:31
you know, I'd love to see you.
20:33
Thank you so much.
20:34
I appreciate your expertise.
20:35
I'm definitely gonna use these hags.
20:37
My face won't burn anymore.
20:38
I'm not gonna put through this anymore.
20:42
I'm glad I could help.
20:43
Thank you all for having me.
20:44
Thank you for your time.
20:46
Take care. Bye bye.
20:48
Take care man, fresh skin.
20:50
It's the weekend. I'm feeling good.
20:53
Yeah, but this burning though.
20:56
I'm not gonna lie.
20:57
I was like, dude,
20:58
when you had the,
20:59
the toothpaste and she said that it was like the opposite.
21:03
I just like, I'm just kidding.
21:12
Hey, sister, what do you have there?
21:14
Oh, my frozen embryos.
21:15
But according to Alabama,
21:16
these are considered Children.
21:18
Wait, what do you mean by Children?
21:19
Yes, brother. There's a lot happening in Alabama and it's
21:24
affecting in vitro fertilization.
21:27
Lupe Rodriguez, the Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for
21:31
Reproductive Justice is here to give us the full update.
21:35
Hi, Lupe, welcome.
21:37
Hi. Thank you for having me.
21:39
Thank you so much for coming on.
21:41
And so what is happening with IVF in Alabama,
21:45
the Alabama Supreme Court ruled this week that frozen embryos are considered
21:50
Children. Basically, it's criminal act to dispose of frozen embryos
21:55
Fertility clinics and places that provide in vitro fertilization are ceasing
22:00
their operations for fear of being criminalized for doing the kind of
22:05
or providing the kind of care that they do.
22:08
And it's concerning for the rest of the country and access
22:11
to reproductive health care.
22:13
not just for Alabamians,
22:14
but, but for folks all around the country and,
22:17
and who will this impact the ruling directly impacts the hundreds of
22:21
Alabamians who seek invert fertilization care every year.
22:27
Really, you know,
22:28
pushing that care out of reach for them.
22:30
It's making it more expensive,
22:31
of course, and it's making it harder for people who
22:35
are trying to build their families to do so and,
22:37
and then currently families are concerned that they're unable to make decisions
22:41
about their embryos in our perspective.
22:44
working with Latinos across the country.
22:47
We know that Latinos are already disproportionately impacted by abortion
22:53
bans by other kinds of restrictions on their reproductive health choices.
22:57
And this ruling, you know,
22:59
only increases the number of of barriers that already exist in
23:04
front of them to be able to make reproductive health decisions for
23:06
themselves and their families.
23:08
And is this going to happen elsewhere?
23:11
Like can this happen in other states?
23:14
And I think I think our concern is definitely that this is
23:18
these kinds of laws that give personhood rights to embryos
23:24
are a part of what many organizations like mine and other
23:29
activists that have been fighting for reproductive justice have been fighting against
23:33
for a long time.
23:34
These kinds of,
23:35
of laws are not new.
23:37
There have been several states across the country in which
23:41
anti abortion activists have tried to pass these kinds of laws.
23:46
And so they signal,
23:48
you know, this signals a,
23:50
a win for these folks who,
23:51
who have been trying to pass these laws across the country.
23:55
So yes, the expectation that we have is that this
23:57
will, this trend will continue and,
24:00
and that it will be attempted in other parts of the country
24:02
and other states as well.
24:04
Really scary. What can voters do if they don't want
24:08
this to happen in their state?
24:10
So we have an election this year that has contests
24:13
at the local level,
24:15
at the state level,
24:15
at the federal level.
24:17
I think it's super important that folks are activated and,
24:20
and, and go out to vote.
24:22
because the decisions that we make in these elections have
24:27
a direct impact on,
24:28
on how how these laws can go into effect.
24:32
I think it's also important for folks to talk about this
24:35
right? Like,
24:36
I think across the country,
24:38
these kinds of laws or attempts at passing these kinds of
24:42
laws have, have been happening.
24:45
And you know, and in this case,
24:46
you know, they're affecting specifically in vitro fertilization clinics because abortion
24:50
is already illegal in the state of Alabama.
24:53
But in places where abortion is not illegal at this
24:57
point in time, in the country,
24:59
this, this kind of law could make it illegal.
25:02
and it really,
25:03
you know, ties back into this,
25:05
this ploy that we have seen for anti abortion activists to
25:10
pass this kind of law to be able to criminalize abortion nationwide
25:14
And that has been,
25:15
you know, what they've wanted to do all along.
25:18
And so so we're really concerned about that.
25:21
Well, thank you so much,
25:22
Lupe. We really appreciate,
25:23
you know, your,
25:24
you being on the show and I also wanted to ask,
25:27
where can people find you?
25:29
Oh, well, folks can find me personally at,
25:31
at Lupe and Rodriguez on both Twitter and Instagram and they can
25:35
find our organization Latina Institute at,
25:38
at Latina Institute on Instagram and Twitter as well.
25:41
Amazing. Thank you so much for your time.
25:43
I appreciate it. Thank you and enjoy your Friday.
25:46
Yes. Happy Friday.
25:47
Happy Friday. Hey.
25:54
Oh, what a beautiful way to start a Friday.
25:57
Beautiful way to start off any day.
25:58
Yeah. Yes, it doesn't have to be a Friday.
26:01
Oh, I hear the shakes.
26:05
The part of the box to begin.
26:06
Oh my God. So was Maximo Margarita a few days ago
26:09
but as you know,
26:11
as we heard, there's never a wrong time to have a
26:13
margarita. Never a wrong time.
26:15
So can you introduce yourself and what we're doing?
26:18
Yeah. So we actually run a Instagram channel called Mescal
26:22
Mixer on Instagram.
26:23
It's we do like a lot of variations on cocktails and
26:28
funny enough drinks nowadays go from being like just regular bartending to
26:33
now being like you need a culinary degree.
26:35
So like some, some,
26:37
some Yeah, some,
26:38
some places like do really weird margaritas and you know,
26:43
the evolution of drinks kind of just head in the direction where
26:45
it's like now I need to elevate it.
26:47
So today we're actually trying two variations.
26:50
One regular Tommy's Margarita Classic.
26:53
Can't go wrong with that and then a different spin on it
26:56
11 I I enjoy personally.
27:01
Oh my God. No.
27:03
And a regular like a remix over the top.
27:09
Here we go right here.
27:13
This one OK. We have to guess what it is.
27:16
Oh my God. I'm excited.
27:20
Reminds you of a nice Philly cheese.
27:23
I feel like I might what's that?
27:24
Was it? Jersey Mike's?
27:26
Oh Wow. It smells like pickles.
27:28
I do smell the pickle.
27:30
I actually smelled it a little early too.
27:32
That's why I said pickle because I smell smell the pickle.
27:35
Yeah, it's got a big ass.
27:38
It remind me of like those Gatorade cucumber that get your
27:44
electrolytes. Up, you know,
27:45
if you're gonna be drinking,
27:45
you might as well get that sodium in there too.
27:48
That's cool. I actually like them.
27:50
Now. It's a very polarizing flavor.
27:54
Some people really like them and some people are,
27:56
can't stand them and some people take them off their cheeseburgers.
28:00
Yeah. Actually some,
28:01
some places that I've worked at before they would get fat infused
28:05
like the alcohol.
28:07
Yeah. So you can just let the alcohol sit in fat
28:09
and you kind of develop a fat wash.
28:11
So, yeah, so you can like mix it with bacon
28:14
or like with Wagyu fat is with one place that I
28:17
worked at, they mixed the whiskey with Wagyu fat and strained
28:21
it out. So you're left with like a silkier like
28:24
more easier to drink whiskey.
28:27
That sounds more bougie.
28:28
Yeah. It's a whole science.
28:31
Like you're a mixologist.
28:33
Yeah, something like that.
28:34
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah,
28:34
it gets chemical. Is this another classic or is it one
28:38
of the remakes? So this is actually originally classic Margarita
28:42
started with triple Sec.
28:45
But this variation is actually called a Tommy's Margarita.
28:48
Yeah. Tommy's Margarita became a lot more popular.
28:51
It uses a lot more fresh ingredients and you bring out more
28:54
of that agave taste from the,
28:56
the tequila. Oh OK.
29:02
Yeah, that's the one I prefer though.
29:05
You get way more.
29:07
I wasn't strong for me,
29:08
brother. I'm more of a twisted t kind of guy they
29:14
plastered on the Friday.
29:16
At what time is it?
29:17
1030? What time is it?
29:21
It's o'clock somewhere. Am I right?
29:23
It's good. It's so fresh.
29:25
I feel like the other ones more fresh to me because of
29:28
the cucumber. It's like a different acidity compared to like a
29:31
OG margarita. We gotta take them off.
29:36
What's going on? Oh,
29:39
this is the pickle boy.
29:41
Oh my gosh. Look at all this.
29:43
Wait, why is there bacon?
29:45
Oh Actually So one of the things I wanted to,
29:48
to show you is one of the techniques that they use at
29:50
Oh, the bars that I worked at is suppression
29:53
So you essentially get a CO2 canister or any like keg
29:57
and you stick fruit berries or bacon or whatever you want
30:01
to infuse the spirit with and the amounts of pressure from the
30:05
Co2 can rapidly infuses the spirit.
30:08
So it's, it,
30:09
it gets like to a different,
30:11
yeah, it gets to science.
30:13
I mean, I salt rim,
30:15
you know, but I kind of like mine with a little
30:16
bucky. You know what I mean?
30:19
You have it through the whole show.
30:21
Do we have it through the whole show?
30:23
I knew this was gonna happen a little bit.
30:28
That thing in there too.
30:34
You wait. So like what's,
30:37
what's this for? We're taking shots or something.
30:39
So actually this is something that I cooked up just
30:42
to like show us how kind of different drinks can get.
30:46
This is actually an infused spirit with Hibiscus and some vanilla
30:50
in there too. So like a shot.
30:54
Yeah. All right,
31:06
perfect. It is a shock and it's good though.
31:14
It goes down smooth.
31:15
The color tricks you.
31:17
It does. I know you can drink me honestly.
31:21
Like again, I've gone what is it called?
31:24
Lightweight if you guys are down,
31:25
let's keep drinking. But yeah,
31:29
where can people find you actually before we sign off?
31:31
Yeah. We're actually on right now on just
31:34
Tik Tok and Instagram.
31:36
So you can find us at,
31:38
at Mezcal mixing Yeah,
31:40
so anything with Mescal tequila,
31:41
that's usually what we work with.
31:43
All right, let's keep the good vibes going.
31:48
Has it been Lincoln Bio?
31:50
I'm Alejandro and I'm Jenny and we'll see you on the next
31:56
one. Take care.
31:57
Bye. Cheers.
