This is a re-post of our 2015 LIVE recording at MOD Palm Springs. Hope this gets you in the mood for MOD Palm Springs IV
Join us in the Zen Tiki Lounge for one of our LIVE audience recorded podcasts. Coming to you from Mod Palm Springs, an entire weekend of cocktails, parties, pool time and the warmth of the desert. Get cocktail recipes for a handful of drinks and hear the shenanigans when Rory Snyder, The Do-it's and The Outta Sites all drop by. Plus, we play Whats in Violets bra.
Sunshine and Pumpkin are the two original hosts of the Zen Tiki Lounge podcast. Both hosts with the most are in the lounge for this very special episode which includes an inebriated rant about the things we just don't care for. But don't worry, we get in our tiki goodness with the Murky Lagoon cocoktail, vintage travel posters by pickyourplum.com , an update on MOD-Palm Springs and a big shout to our friends at Tiki Bar t-shirt Club. Did we mention the inebriated complaining? Listener Curtis, this show is for you.
If you scan across the back of any bar in the world you can get a pretty quick picture of the kind of cocktail you are about to receive. Do you see the standard national brands prominently displayed front and center? Likely. Perhaps you notice some harder to find bourbon or rum. That can be promising. What about a dozen or more flavored vodkas? Thats usually a bad sign if you want a well made drink. Regardless of what you see, you should always for what you want. A good bartender will let you know if they can make it and if not, should suggest something in the neighborhood. But lets say you end up in one of the many bars popping up nowadays where a few guys with some money said "Dude! lets open a craft cocktail bar" but none of them had any talent or experience. In places such as these you will likely find some top shelf rum and spirits but be challenged to find anyone behind the counter who can do anything with them. You will have two options. You can ask for your spirit neat or on the rocks and keep things simple. Or, you can throw a very simple recipe at the barkeep and keep an eye on him while he fools around back there. You may just teach him or her a thing or two. On this episode of the podcast we explore this predicament along with listening to some very chill exotica.
Fly to Rio in jetsetter style with cachaça cocktails and the sounds of Bossa Nova. This episode is dedicated to all those who braved the less than ideal conditions of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Do cocktails cure Zika virus? No! But we try anyway. Can you clean an entire bay filled with human waste by the time 20,000 athletes are ready to compete? No! So much to think about.
Its been known for centuries that drinking alcohol can be safer than water. Allegedly. Consult your physician before testing this theory. Then, mix up Agua Suja and celebrate the Summer 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Jeneiro. Ward off Zika virus and most other vectors that could otherwise dampen your trip to paradise.
Somewhat sweet, and very sunny. Sao Paulo Sunrise feels and tastes warm and inviting. Enjoy this simple cocktail by the pool or beach. A great drink for pitchers and punch bowls. No one drinks just one. Invite your friends over and get the Bossa Nova going on the turntable.
Pineapple Freesia is a lady drink that gentlemen prefer. A simple combination of coconut, lime, pineapple and macadamia nut flavors are the key to this superb and sensational sipping delight. Before or after dinner, poolside or in your favorite lounge. Pineapple Freesia won't let you escape the island pleasures you imagine all week long.
