103 Two shakes of pineapple juice

This weeks episode is a little sick in more than one way.  Not only was Sunshine deathly ill from a killer cold, but Pumpkin felt like discussing a subject that many of you may find extremely revolting.  Sunshine gets up on his soap box to warn everyone about the evils of concentrated pineapple juice as it is one of the needed ingredients for many a tiki cocktail.  Check those lables carefully or you may end up with a poor tasting mai tai.  Our regular listeners were very active in the past few weeks, giving us lots of subject matter and even some Music.  Thank you to Peter for the cool 80's tunes and listener Don for the feedback on a previous show topic, the merkin.  Because Sunshine was so ill he didn't conjure up a new cocktail so we had some old favorites instead.  Try a Yellow Bird for example, always a crowd pleaser and Pumpkins favorite cocktail.

Drink of the Week 

Yellow Bird

3oz Pineapple juice (not from concentrate)

1oz banana schnapps

1oz coconut rum

Use a small hurricane glass for this one.  Put all ingredients in a shaker with ice and pour into chilled glass with cubed ice. This drink is for those with a sweet tooth.  Don't like em so sweet?  Try a squeeze of lime, it works well with this cocktail.

102 Dr. Chao's panda juice

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.
