Description

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 and accompanying cocktail recipes that complement the music's mood, imagery in the lyrics, or connect the drink to the artist. This is your guide to a rich listening session for one, two, or more.

Among the 70 featured albums are: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club, Purple Rain, Sticky Fingers, 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

Review quote

"Brother-and-sister authors Andr Darlington and Tenaya Darlington want to enhance your music listening experience, one drink at a time, with Booze and Vinyl. Their book isn't just a sonic exploration of music's greatest hits of the past 60 years - it's also a thoughtful retrospective on how popular cocktails became a part of American culture."--Washington Post Express "This is the Best Damn Drink/Music Book on the Planet....We're naturally excited about the new book by the brother and sister team of Andre and Tenaya Darlington, which pairs 70 seminal albums from the 1950s through the 2000s with A- and B-side cocktails."--Paste Magazine "If you're looking for an album education, a trip down memory lane or simply a fun entry point into the world of vinyl, pick up Tenaya and Andr Darlington's new book...We suspect the book will nudge along a resurgence of listening parties, complete with just the right cocktails to set the mood."--Edible Philly ." . . a unique take that grabs your attention like a record scratch in a monotony of drink books."
--- TastingTable.com (The Best New Cookbooks for Spring 2018) "Listening to the entire Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust LP, side A then side B, would be that much better with a perfectly paired cocktail. Purple Rain, too. Booze & Vinyl goes in deep on years of classic music with drink recipes to match."
--- Esquire.com "A groovy, gorgeous gulp of a book. You'll never use an album cover as a coaster again."---Tim Federle, bestselling author of Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist
