Sunshine challenged both Susan and Kalani to give gin another try. Pictured above is our version of a sling but with a bit of a tropical twist. Both ladies enjoyed the combination of fresh juices, gin and cachaça.Read More
All of us in here at ZTL have been traveling after the holidays. Pumpkin just returned from a Caribbean cruise and wanted another Dirty Shirley. Normally we wouldn't be sipping such a drink in our tiki bar, but we let her have what she wants just this one time. 1.5 oz Vodka, .75 oz grenadine (we used real homemade pomegranate syrup) and 4-5 oz lemon lime soda are a nice combination when and only when combined correctly in the right amounts. Sunshine kept to his palate and enjoyed a Hemingway Daiquiri. You can click for the recipe and the story behind the classic cocktail.Read More

On this week's show Sunshine and Pumpkin send a big "Howdy" to their listeners on the continent of Africa. The hot dog conspiracy continues, warning: don't let your children choke on weiners. Bush continues to speak on behalf of the country with arrogance and stupidity. A heavy episode, but worth the listen.
