Rachel Maddow Mixes Cocktails With Jimmy Fallon, Says He Needs To "Drink A More Manly Drink" (VIDEO)

Hobbyist mixologist (and MSNBC darling) Rachel Maddow appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" Tuesday night and demonstrated how to shake up a Bijou cocktail.

"I'm like a mean dork about [drinking]," Maddow said, explaining that while she does not cook she has a full bookshelf of books about 19th century cocktails.

Maddow also scoffed when Fallon claimed to like a nice Bud Light Lime — "No you don't!" she said — and told him that he could "drink a more manly drink" than his go-to Gin & Tonic.

Maddow also mixed cocktails for Martha Stewart on Election Day. Watch that segment here.
