With all that greenery in the last drink, Travis switched things up and challenged friend and former co-worker Sean Ward of Giuseppe’s Ritrovo to make a drink with the most American form of beef: jerky. The Truck Stop Tango is the result of a man who appreciates a stiff drink on the side of a highway, which is something I think we can all get behind. Just make sure no one is getting behind the wheel after a couple of these.
