Aloha, tikiphiles! Thanks for joining me for Episode 17 of Marooned: A Texas Tiki Podcast.

Aloha, tikiphiles! Thanks for joining me for another episode of Marooned: A Texas Tiki Podcast.
My guest this episode is the founder of tiki blog, The Atomic Grog, Jim "Hurricane" Hayward. Jim is someone I'd been interested in doing an episode with for a long time and seemed like the logical choice once we began to plan our visit to the Mai Kai.
It was a blast talking to him for an episode of the podcast and it's a very informative episode if you're interested in the Mai Kai and its cocktails. If there's a drink on their menu that you enjoy, then I guarantee you'll find a tribute recipe for it on The Atomic Grog.
Our drink for this episode is going to be Jim's tribute to Mai Kai classic, the Mutiny.
Be sure to follow Hurricane Hayward on Instagram, @theatomicgrog.
Mahalo and okole maluna, y'all!
