360 Do Cocktails Cure Zika Virus? Celebrating The 2016 Summer Olympics

Cachaca, Cachaça, cachasa.  Often spelled and pronounced incorrectly by those of us in the US.  Try the phonetic: ka Sha sa.  All we can do is sip cocktails made with this lovely spirit while athletes from around the world gather in Rio for the 2016 Olympic games.  Starshine and Sunshine are more than happy to chat about the beauty of the competitors from around the world.  Starshine prefers the gymnasts while Sunshine is a big fan of mens swimming and diving.  So many things to see and sports to cheer for.  We celebrate with ample Bossa Nova and Samba from some of the exotica artists you may be familiar with as well as those that may be new to you.  

From Left: Oronoco Silver rum from Brazil, Cachaça 51 and Pirapora Cachaça.  It should be noted that Oronoco rum has been very difficult to find in the USA lately but is still available, this rum is made from cane juice just like cachaça but is blended with rum and Brazil will not allow it be called cachaça.

Try our latest cocktail created just for the Summer Olympics.  Agua Suja, the name says it all but the tastes will keep you coming back.  

Passion fruit juice blends with Cachaça, creme de Cassis and fresh mint and orange zest.  Agua Suja lets the Cachaça flavor out while blending subtle fruit and aromas.

With only a few weeks left to go, Tiki Oasis is approaching very fast.  This is the single biggest tiki event in the world and it is always a sight for the each of many senses.  Four days of tiki drinks, vintage cars, burlesque entertainment, hawaiian shirts, vintage vendors, tons of live music and literally more room crawls and room parties than you can shake your stick at.  Although ZTL will not be attending, you still have time to get your tickets and book a room in one of the area hotels.  We recommend first timers buy a weekend wristband so you can come and go as you like without worrying about having admission to any of the festivities.  And!....the theme this year is Monsters.  We love it.
