    423 Battery Operated Lava Lamps And Canker Sores

    Starshine, Sunshine and Hibiscus are in the lounge for this episode of ZTL.
    The work week was nothing short of lame and all of us were ready for a
    fresh cocktail, easy exotica and some non intellectual conversation. Our
    new drink is called Jaded and was simply inspired by a gift of green
    Chartreuse.

    Aloooooooha! it was hard for us to believe that this was our 14th annual
    Holiday Spectacular. Sunshine, Pumpkin, Starshine and Kalani are in the Zen
    Tiki Lounge behind the microphone sharing some fun memories while sipping
    on a myriad of our favorite winter concoctions. Use the links below to get

    entire episode to hear the music, fun and ridiculousness. A highlight of
    this years show is our visit with Jeff Ballard who created the TikiComber
    app and has been bringing us his travels via TikiTrail for the past few
    years. There is plenty of holiday tiki themed goodness in this podcast so
    read below and listen to get it all.

    420 Island Fruitcake: Featuring New Music from Jill Martini and The Shrunken Heads

    As we approach the full swing of the holiday season you will need a few
    cocktail recipes to show off with friends and family. One of our favorites
    is Island Fruitcake. If you attended Circa Caliente this past October you
    may have had the chance to hear Jill Martini and the Shrunken Heads. The
    group played Sunday afternoon and served as the whip cream on a weekend
    full great live performances. Jill, a good friend of the podcast sent us
    the album and Sunshine was more than happy to play tracks on this episode.

    Join Sunshine Tiki and Starshine Tiki in the Zen Tiki Lounge for a walk
    down Circa Caliente Room Crawl memory lane. Over the past 13 years we have
    recorded live at many events but have never shared our thoughts on each
    room on the crawl in sequential order. Until now! Below you will find the
    room crawl list, and some pictures from each room in the order they
    happened over the awesome Circa weekend.

    418 How To Make Falernum, Spiced Rum And What To Do With Them

    418 How To Make Falernum, Spiced Rum And What To Do With Them

    Make your own Falernum and Spice Rum. Thats the message in this episode of
    ZTL podcast. Just before heading off on an Alaskan cruise, Sunshine jumped
    behind the bar to record this quick little show. With fall approaching its
    a great time to spice some of your own rum and why not try making falernum
    at the same time. These two infusions are essential in tiki mixology and by
    making your own version you can assume more control over the flavor profile
    of your cocktails.

The dimly lit tiki bar that lives in my head

Listening to this podcast is like hanging out with friends. They mix a cocktail at the beginning of each episode and have a drink (or three) and a chat. The talk is not always tiki related but it is always interesting and a lot of fun. I listen while I am working but I always feel a little drunk by the end of the show. Keep up the great work!

Wonderful

A great way to put a smile on your face! A bunch of funny, opinionated Tiki fans mix up the cocktails while chatting about anything and everything while playing some great vintage lounge and exotica. Well worth the time to listen. Lots of fun!
