MSNBC political commentator Rachel Maddow appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. She called out Fallon on his cocktail of choice—a gin and tonic—telling him she thinks he "can drink a more manly drink." She mixes him a Bijou (gin, vermouth, and chartreuse). "Sounds like a little dog," Fallon says.
Mixing cocktails while guesting on other shows seems to have become a bit of a shtick with Maddow, but who can blame her? Half the people in the audience probably don't agree with her views, and making drinks is a nice way to avoid talking politics.
