113 Dr. Funk visits the Zen Tiki Lounge

The name of the game is GET PUMPKIN DRUNK!  We only do this to make our listeners happy.  Email after email asks for more smashed Pumpkin.  So, 1 shooter, 1 strong ass cocktail and a couple slices of rum cake.  That'll do her.  After the demon rum starts coursing through her veins, her conversation goes south of the bikini.  Pumpkin offers her 12 steps to a cheaper 2009.  Free booze is good.  Bar supplies on the cheap, we tell you how.  Need to make some extra cash?  Sell your stomach.  All in this episode.  Sunshine takes us back on course with Elvis Bday trivia and Mrs. Kravitz shenanigans.  Our official drink of the week is the classic Dr. Funk.  A refreshingly odd little drink.  But damn good.  There so much more but we honestly forgot to take notes, just listen and drink along.  

This Weeks Drink: Dr. Funk

1.5 oz Dark rum

.25 oz Pastis or Absinthe

.5 oz lemon juice

.5 oz grenadine

1 oz lime juice (fresh squeezed)

Shake, shake, shake.  Just pour into a tall glass filled with crushed ice.  A long straw is perfect for Dr. Funk.  Garnish with lemon wedge on rim and three or four cherries, olives or a combo of both.  Funky!
