It had only been a few days since recording our previous podcast. In order to get you another episode before the holidays jump on us we popped into the lounge for a quickie. Starshine, Sunshine and Kalani enjoy an easy to make drink that rings in the fall/winter season with the smoothness of cinnamon, vanilla and citrus. Mix Holiday Sunset and serve all season long.Read More

Aloha and Merry Christmas. Thats the general theme of our show this week, our last podcast before we sail on past the busiest holiday of the year and set course for the new year. Both Sunshine and Pumpkin share some thoughts on great things you can do or buy for that special someone. But, most importantly we have finally launched the Zen Tiki Store. Need exotica for your music collection? We got it. Maybe some good reading about your favorite subject, RUM. We have the covered also. Bar trinkets, mugs, party goods etc. Check out the store and shop knowing that each purchase helps us get that much closer to the tiki bar of our dreams and an upgraded podcast for all of you. We also discuss the usual rant and rave about sex changes, old people spraying fox urine on children, the new Trader Vic's in Chicago, custody battles for kitties and so much more. The cocktail this week was a bit on the fierce side and Pumpkin got a little loopy. So much the better. Listen, drink, enjoy. Drink of the week: Glogg
Mix 1 part Glogg(found in specialty food stores, its a Scandanavian holiday beverage mix) with 1 part water. 2oz Glogg with 2oz water works well. Heat mixture, but do not boil. Pour into Irish coffee mug and add 1oz Rum or Vodka. Makes a great holiday treat.

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.
