It’s been a while since we invited a new host into the Zen Tiki Lounge. This week we are joined by Krista! A huge fan of tiki and pop culture herself, Krista fits right in here in the ZTL. Now Who’s ready for a cocktail? Try a simple grapefruit daiquiri. Sunshine and Krista sip this low calorie drink while Xavier Cugat and other great latin artists of the day. This week is full of tips for entertaining with less calories, both food and drink. You must try the Hawaiian Bruschetta paired with the Grapefruit Daiquiri. Simply magical together. And for the veggie lovers Krista has some tips on platters with dips that won’t break your waist. We’re also talking about reusing things around the bar, keeping that cocktail lifestyle as green as possible. Theres plenty more but my inebriated fingers are growing weak. Listen to the show for all the rest. Cheers!
