261 Do Your Tikis Dance With Jack Daniels?

This weeks podcast was just found in a dusty place, deep inside the macbook.  Apparently recorded back in early September, Kalani and Sunshine popped into the lounge for cocktails and some great music from The Exotics.  Hear three awesome tracks from this great band that hails from Milwaukee.  Don Nelson who is not only in the band but also operates the Foundation Tiki Bar in Milwaukee was nice enough to drop a copy of the album with us.  This podcast will seem like going back in time since the Taboo event happened over a month ago.  But, the music, cocktails and banter still sound fresh.  Get a kickin recipe for a Jack Daniels ice cream cake you can do at home and some tips from Kalani about her weight loss challenges.  More, fresh and new podcasts coming very soon. Whiskey Lemon Ice Cream Cake

Making your own boozy ice cream cake really couldn't be easier.  And you can freeze it ahead of time and just pull it out before your serve.  Our original recipe uses vanilla whipped topping for the frosting, but we also tried adding chocolate powder and vanilla to the whipped topping for more fun and flavor.
