Have you noticed the weather lately? We have. Its time go start getting ready for that Summer BBQ/Luau or any other theme you like. Sunshine and Pumpkin naturally gravitate towards the tiki side of things but to each their own. On the podcast this week we toast the traditional tack of the American/Hawaiian Luau. A mai tai here and a pina colada there. Maybe a blue hawaiian or two to wash it down. You can feel good without a nice lei and a few grass skirts. Pumpkin just reminds everyone that plastic leis and grass skirts are a tragedy. Go for the real thing and use those skirts year after year. Buy yourself a few nice silk leis and hang em on any old hook till you need them next. Other subjects this week include Quiznos and their dirty after hours commercials....which we like, Malibu rum offers free applications for the Iphone, Steve Zahn is a funny guy and not bad to look at either, and the usual poor taste in vocabulary continues as Pumpkin gets buzzed.
You asked and you got it. Our first Hump day podcast, and depending on how many listeners tune in we may keep this up. Whats different? Starshine will co-host the Wednesday shows as Pumpkin has a job or something. On this very special podcast Starshine and Sunshine shake up a cocktail per the usual and banter on about whatever tickles their fancy. Our cocktail is the Bali Dream, choc full of many spirits including one of our new favorites...black Rum. Did we mention that we need your help? We still have a few t-shirts left before we order more. Just $25 which includes shipping....send us an email with your size and we can get one to you. Looks great on pretty much anyone. Sunshine responds to a listener request to give advice on which iPhone apps are best for cocktails. Listen to hear which are best and in most cases FREE!
Theres nothing better than a show just coming together. Although the first few minutes were a bit difficult due to the unpredictable nature of a certain someones canine, it all worked out. Pumpkin had her pooch Charles join us this week and he certainly didn't mind making plenty of noise. For some reason he wasn't too keen on the cocktail. We tried a pomegranate lemonade type concoction that is sure to please anyone who isn't looking for a complicated beverage. Sweet and tart and still packed with plenty o' booze. Speaking of drinks, Sunshine tells the listeners about a new iPhone application call "Drinks." This handy little app has over 4500 recipes and you can add your own, perfect for the bartender in all of us. We also discuss the Red Cross current ban on gay blood, the unexpected electrical usage of your wall air freshener and plenty of other shenanigans.
Drink of the Week Koro's Heart 3oz Pineapple juice (not from concentrate) .5oz fresh lemon juice 1oz pomegranate schnapps .5oz pomegranate syrup (we recommend Monin) Be sure to chill the glasses first, the frost really makes this drink a winner. Toss everything in a shaker with ice cubes, not crushed ice. Shake for just a moment and pour into chilled glasses filled with ice. Garnish with a single lemon wheel.
