Some side effects of this podcast include dry mouth, lazy eye, permanent erection and death. Or maybe those are some of the more common potential issues with most of the medications you see on TV. We suggest mixing our custom coffee cocktail called Flamingo Swamp before you enjoy this episode of ZTL. Sunshine and Starshine LOVE their coffee and LOVE It even more when you add spirits. Listen for the recipe. Also on this show: hmmmmmm, just listen. Feeling lazy.

In the history of ZTL podcast the ladies have never enjoyed an all spirit cocktail. Things change! Finally. Sunshine was inspired by a recent trip to the local booze barn and played with some new ingredients. Over the years we have talked about the Wreck Bar in Ft. Lauderdale a few times. Sunshine and husband have had the pleasure of visiting a few times while spending a little time in town before and after hopping on cruise ships. And after our second round of Smudge Pots we moved on to trying some recent purchases from a local LA distillery.

396 I'll Take A Tiki Bar Over An Oscar Party Any Day

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.  Sip a Rumhattan in your dimly lit corner and enjoy 45 minutes of vintage exotica recorded from vinyl.
