Hey guys,We are still in lockdown so this show is recorded via internet but you know us...we never stop for anything! We want to bring the show to you when you are sitting at home wondering what to do this summer!This show is all about Hawaiian cocktails and the Luau. It's international Luau month this month!! We also very excited to introduce some cocktails from a new pioneer in the tiki world. Lynn Calvo has been working hard in New York district to open her bar called Lynn's Hula Hut. She has written a book called "Tiki with a Twist" which is not in my library but it soon will be (back ordered...boo). She has travelled the world and brought her own version of oasis to her state. She has written a book, opened a bar and even started branding her own infused spirits...more on her later!!The two cocktails we are doing today are complete different ends of tiki. The first one is the "Lono Tiki Cocktail" which has a great combination of rums, mango, coconut and even banana (not Paola's favorite LOL).The next one is the "Brazilian Breeze Tiki Cocktail". This one is shaken cocktail and also some muddling of cucumbers as well. Her recipe has a fermented infusion of Tequila and pineapple. We will add links at the bottom for you on how to do this. We do talk about the "pros" and "cons" of both syrups verses fermented infusions. You decide which way to go. The new segment "The Brazilian" features our co-host Paola and her expertise on Brazilian culture and ways of the world. We get into driving techniques...can be dangerous! Also, what is the Brazilian wax verses a bikini wax...listen to find out!!!!On "Did you know?" segment, we talk about the Luau and some cool history facts about it. Women and Men ate separately and dancing at one point was banned! What? no!!Ok, here are tons of links to everything in this episode:Recipe page for cocktails: https://tikicentralcanada.ca/recipes/Floating technique: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ufj528irxvc (this is also a cool New York sour in this video, what a bonus cocktail)Muddling technique:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPCu1Tg21kc&t=44sFermented infusion technique: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84JGlnuOc7QPineapple simple syrup:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOFPh7KR1RsLynn Calvo's links:Lynn Calvo article: https://northforker.com/2020/07/sail-away-to-the-tropics-with-spirits-from-montauk-tiki-bar-lynns-hula-hut/Lynn Calvo’s Forbes article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/ranagood/2020/02/26/lynns-hula-hut-tiki-vibes-montauk/?sh=40737b0c2c19Lynn’s Hula Hut: https://www.lynnshulahut.net/Hula Hut Spirits: https://www.hulahutspirits.com/liquorLynn’s YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRgX9ohFgSQLynn’s book Tiki with a Twist: https://www.amazon.ca/Tiki-Twist-Fresh-Tropical-Cocktails/dp/1454918268/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=lynn+calvo&qid=1619202223&sr=8-1BONUS VIDEO: Gabriel Iglesias Luau YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjXChWKKQUwLuau history YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C79A8bsaWCsPineapple corer: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08YJDP3YB/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_233NDH0HD9SENCNGZ1TR?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
