Definitely my favorite segment to date. Thanks to Louie and Matt for their "safety services" and to the amazing WBIR crew that lets me get away with doing crazy stuff like this.

WTNZ Segment #39: Drinks for the Lake & Beach

Click to watch segment #39 from June 25, 2014: Drinks for the Lake and Beach

Mike's face-palming response to my "Baby Got Back" reference tells you all need to know about the clip, other than the fact that the Blue Chair Breezer is one tasty cocktail alternative to a Pina Colada. Here's how to make it:

Blue Chair Breezer
  • 2 ounces Blue Chair Bay Banana Rum
  • 1/2 ounce Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum
  • 1/2 ounce Midori Melon Liqueur
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice (or one small can)
  • 1 dash Coco Lopez
  • Shake with ice and strain into a highball glass


My #38 segment from June 11, 2014 on whiskies isn't being posted online due to audio issues, but here's a great pic Josh took from it:

WTNZ Segment #37: Rose Water Cocktail

Click to watch segment #37 from May 26, 2014: Rose Water Cocktail

This is a pretty easy cocktail to make that's a winner on taste and presentation. Perfect for parties! And if Belaire Rose is delicious enough for the Boss, then I recommend buying it by the case.
