Geoff and the Red-Tailed Parrot
Being the lead actor on a TV show lends very little free time. After a grueling 15 hour day of work, Geoff Stults then has to memorize the next day’s dialogue. Yep, all the teachers of his past would be proud to know he does his homework!
At lunch, when he’d really rather be sleeping, he opts to work out - no matter the location. Before heading back to filming, he’ll often come to the hair trailer drenched, (from swimming laps in the ocean), in desperate need of a restyle.
While in the hair and makeup trailer, we make kale salad, green tea blends, turmeric tonics, protein drinks and anything we can find to keep this hard-pressed dude going.
When Geoff isn’t working, he’s part owner of Rock & Reilly’s, a rock n’ roll pub on Sunset Blvd. While Geoff’s drink of choice is Guinness, his character Walter on the TV show “The Finder” has an endless array of favorite cocktails that “have purpose.” Seeking a "Walter" favorite, we recently discovered...
...The Red-Tailed Parrot drink. Bars across the country are infusing their drinks with Novo Fogo Cachacas and for each one sold, 50 cents is donated to protect the endangered Red-Tailed Parrot of Southern Brazil. The Novo Fogo website describes the bird as “a seed-disperser extraordinaire, moving seeds from the mountain forest to islands, and helping preserve the biodiversity of our beloved Atlantic Rainforest.”
Unfortunately, heavy poaching has almost destroyed these lime colored, hard working birds. So next time you’re out, be sure to ask your bartender if they can make this delectable drink and help save this Brazilian bird!

*For each drink sold with Novo Fogo Cachacas in it, Novo Fogo donates 50 cents to The Society for Wildlife Research in Brazil (SPVS, www.spvs.org.br), which is a non-profit organization located in the Atlantic Rainforest that provides anti-poaching patrols and monitors the birds’ natural habitat.
