137 The Mini Bar Party with Michael Jackson

137 The Mini Bar Party with Michael Jackson

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.

414 Vegan Missionaries Downfall And The Bar Flies Who Like Them More Than Marvel Super Hero Movies

Sunshine and Pumpkin hopped onto the bar stools for this episode on a warm June afternoon. When Pumpkin is in the lounge we have blends drinks. Sunshine does NOT have many of these blended cocktails in his recipe book so turning to classic drink recipes is always a good idea. Missionaries Downfall from the Total Tiki app by Beachbum Berry. Conversation on this episode includes: Super hero movies just need to stop, Golden Tiki Las Vegas has new food items and great new decor, memories of the first ZTL podcasts, dead raccoons in the ceiling of our old apartment, a tiki bar t-shirt club giveaway and more.

333 Honey Badgers Invade The Tiki Bar

Sunshine and Starshine happened into the Zen Tiki Lounge on a warm Summers day.  The next thing they knew, the Honey Badger had taken control of the bar and forced them to drink endless cocktails.  Not a thing wrong with that.  Listen to our inebriated trip through random subject matter mixed with fresh cocktail ingredients.  And catch a sweet video from Ohana Luau by the Lake in St. George NY.  Mahalo to Pete Weinzettl for sending the video.  http://youtu.be/k7DfZ9IgXVQ

110 Tiki drinks make the holidays brighter!

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.
