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.Read More

just back from Las Vegas, Sunshine shares his experience of ordering mai tais from 6 different sin city casino bars just to see what would happen. Some bars were certainly better than others and those you may think would serve the better drink didn't necessarily do so.

This episode of ZTL is very special. Pumpkin has blessed us with her "witty" form of conversation which is usually enjoyed in small doses such as this one hour podcast. The show begins with a perfectly appropriate summer libation, the Sand Trap. After just one Sand Trap, Pumpkin becomes mentally stuck in her usual low brow rolling thought train that includes bedroom things she does not do, memories of being a mall rat and a strange rant about Yma Sumac running into a volcano.Read More

Below left, Sunshine Tiki and Kalani enjoy Bitter Harbor in the Zen Tiki Lounge. Our newest tropical cocktail with fresh grapefruit and lemon juices along with several rums and bitters. We sported our green for St. Pattys day and sipped more than a few drinks. On the right we cooked up a pulled pork style slider made with jackfruit in a tangy BBQ sauce. This meat like alternative does have a slightly different texture than pulled pork, it is a little softer but not slimy or chewy. Cooked up and on a Kings Hawaiian role this stuff from The Jackfruit Company is a great bar snack that your vegan and meat eating friends will like.

Its Oscar night and Sunshine wants nothing to do with it. Who needs to see a bunch of entitled people get dressed up and ramble on about all the "amazing" things they have done? Not us! Thats a perfect time for a quick podcast with lite commentary and lots of exotica. This show will best be enjoyed with a nice rum drink and a set of headphones.
