Make your own Falernum and Spice Rum. Thats the message in this episode of ZTL podcast. Just before heading off on an Alaskan cruise, Sunshine jumped behind the bar to record this quick little show. With fall approaching its a great time to spice some of your own rum and why not try making falernum at the same time. These two infusions are essential in tiki mixology and by making your own version you can assume more control over the flavor profile of your cocktails.Read More

Below: Sunshine Tiki takes you on a quick preview of room party hosted by Zen Tiki Lounge at Tiki Caliente 10 in Palm Springs, May 2018
Those of us who attend weekend long tiki parties often have a hard time explaining to others what we did for 3-5 days. The best way is to show you. Below you see lots of fantastic cocktails from all those who hosted on the crawl this year at Tiki Caliente 10. Room themes were outstanding as you can see. Pirates, mermaids, casino, Godzilla and Monkeys just to name a few.
Sometimes it takes more than one try to get our podcast recorded and ready for you. Sunshine and Starshine were in the lounge sipping the Forbidden Atoll when shortly after finishing the show, disaster struck. We may never know where the original first 20 minutes of this episode went. Lucky for everyone we were together again at a local casino and had time to bring the laptop. Special thanks to our listeners who sent in some great questions that led to ample conversation. And, a big Mahalo to Mr. Ho himself for sending an audio clip with details on the upcoming tour. Listen to the whole hour for all the fun. Plus, music by Jim Fiegan from his album Tiki Blues.Read More

Join Sunshine and Starshine for an impromptu but inebriated podcast from one of our favorite casinos. Good thing we brought the laptop computer. After just two hours playing slots and sipping complimentary cocktails, we felt like a little time behind the microphone would be fun. Because we weren't actually capable of saying too much with any train of though, this is mostly a music show. So please sip a drink and enjoy the exotica.Read More
