Watch Jimmy Fallon and Rachel Maddow Make Martinis

MSNBC talking head/self proclaimed "good drinker" Rachel Maddow stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to make martinis, the "king of the cocktail," because Fallon is "kind of the man now." Maddow gets into the bleak past of America's drinking culture, where "any drink that came in a glass with a stem was called a martini." She has nifty tips and tricks for making martinis, the key being not to use that old bottle of vermouth that everybody "inherited from their grandmother that they have in the back of the liquor cabinet." Fallon is also put to work, "breaking a sweat" over creating a usable lemon twist. Go, watch:
