Ready to rediscover your favorite band on vinyl, accompanied by a SIDE A and SIDE B cocktail?

 

Booze and Vinyl explores the intersection of timeless music and mixed drinks with a spotlight on 70 great records from the 1950s through the 2000s. 

From modern craft cocktails to old standbys, prepare to shake, stir, and just plain pour your way through some of the best wax ever pressed. Wickedly designed and featuring photography throughout, Booze & Vinyl is organized by mood, from Rock to Chill, Dance, and Seduce. Each entry has liner notes that underscore the album's musical highlights, a suggested theme for a listening party (like a whiskey tasting for The White Stripes, or a punk rock tea party for Blondie), plus a pair of cocktail recipes that complement the music's mood, imagery, or lyrics. This is your guide to a rich listening session for one, two, or more.

Among the 70 featured albums: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club, Purple Rain, Born To Run, License to Ill, Appetite for Destruction, Thriller, Like a Virgin, Low End Theory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, Hotel California, Buena Vista Social Club, Back to Black, Pet Sounds, Vampire Weekend, and many more.
