Written by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel

With the holidays here, it’s time for parties.

josh-agleTo keep the good times rolling and jazz things up, all it takes is a little help from renowned 60’s retro and tiki artist Josh Agle (AKA “Shag“).

shag-party-book2SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel recently came across the ultimate party book SHAG Party – Cocktails and Appetizers to Seduce and Entertain.

Written by tiki and mixology expert Adam Rocke and illustrated by Shag, it has everything you need to host a cool party.

cocktail-shakerWhether it’s a Bongo Beat Bash you’re after, South of the Border shindig or Seduction for Two evening, this little gem of a book has you covered.

For your Bongo Beat Bash


why not start the festivities off with a Kool Kat Cooler or shake up the perfect Mondo Martini?

That’s sure to put your guests in a party mood.




Follow it with Crab Bake de Beauvoir and some Hot Dates appetizers and you will be ready to light the tiki torches.





On South of the Border night


there’s nothing like a pitcher of Sangria to get the joint jumping or a classic Margarita.






Then heat things up with Old Baja Guacamole and Jalapeno Poppers.

Just top a warm tortilla with heated refried beans and diced onions, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, salsa and cheddar cheese. Olé! It’s a fiesta! Perfect for one or big enough to share.

For your Seduction for Two evening


Rocke and Shag have pulled out the stops with an array of cocktails – Love, Affair to Remember, and more.



The menu is perfect for a battle (and truce) of the sexes – Hot Brie from Mars and Caviar from Venus.

Plus, if this isn’t enough, check out the duo’s other retro/tiki party books. In no time at all, you’ll be the “host with the most.”
