This episode was originally recorded 7/4/2009. Our views and comments about Michael Jackson are somewhat different a decade later. Sunshine and Starshine in the lounge this week. After some fairly painful dental work Sunshine is a bit under the influence of numbing agents so our drink this week is not the usual poison. Using Beachbum Berry's iPhone app we find a great coffee cocktail called Otto's Grotto. Try this one after dinner, with dessert etc. Our subjects this week range from the west coast to the east.Read More
This episode is all Sunshine and music. Every now and then the Ladies of the lounge are busy but Sunshine wants to get behind the mic anyway. This is when you get a lot of exotica thrown at you for setting the mood in your dimly lit corner with cocktail in hand. No other notes needed. Just listen and enjoy the short conversation and songs from Tikiyaki Orchestra, Les Baxter, The Out-Islanders, Esquivel and The Crazed Mugs.Read More
One could ask if all cocktails go with all foods. Or One could just drink and eat without care. On this show we dare to savor both sushi and the Pink Squirrel cocktail. After returning from Mod Palm Springs we were left with a full gallon of ingredients and don't want them to hang around too long. Also on this episode we give some seasonal cold and hot coffee cocktail recipes, answer a few listener questions and admit that in the midst of wedding planning (Sunshine is getting married) the podcast is going to be hit and miss for the next two months. Listen! Subscribe! Cheers!Read More
Aloha Tiki Friends! Pumpkin is out of the lounge this week, so Starshine dropped by for cocktails and shenanigans. We both wanted a little bit of holiday cheer so the holiday tunes are playing and the stories are reminiscing. To fully enjoy the moment I whipped up both a hot cocktail and a nice cordial for dessert. Both are great for any of you holiday outings, mix some up for friends. After her first drinky, Starshine got a little unprofessional and we wouldn't have it any other way. Do you remember the Christmas sausage from way back, she asked? Who wouldn't. And what about drag queens robbing jewelry stores, cleansing your colon, jogging off the celebratory calories and poking fun at the Brits for their version of what we call English. Enjoy yourself with us. We sure did. Drink of the Week: The cold killer
1 tsp honey, 1 peppermint tea bag, 2 Ricola coughdrops, 5 oz boiling water, 1 oz vanilla vodka
In an Irish coffee mug, pour in boiling water on top of coughdrops. Brew tea bag for just one minute and remove. Add honey, lemon and the vodka last. Drink one or two of these to make most colds blow away.
