The same way you'd pair wine with a meal, we pair cocktails with music. We take a spirit, match it with a genre of music, and make a playlist to go with various cocktail selections. Enjoy the spirits and the sounds, and remember to imbibe responsibly.

    The Cabin Chronicles - New Cocktail Inventions & A Grab Bag of Disco

    The Cabin Chronicles - New Cocktail Inventions & A Grab Bag of Disco

    Skye and Alex convene in an undisclosed remote location in the Shenandoah Valley and go head to head on their ideas for riffs on classics. Sit back with some early disco from Watler Murphy and the Silver Convention, while we compare and rank Alex's "Dancing Queens Cocktail, Skye's "Final Ward" and more.

    Have fun out there.

    Frank Sinatra and a "Dealer's Choice" of Old School Drinks

    Frank Sinatra and a "Dealer's Choice" of Old School Drinks

    We dove into the music of Old Blue Eyes, and one of his most lush, introspective, and velvety records, 1959's "No One Cares," and did a little old-school cocktail lottery. Learn why some of the old drinks your grandpa and Frankie used to sip on by the fire have gone out of fashion, why some should come back, and why some should remain in obscurity.  

    Enjoy the spirits, enjoy the sounds, and have fun out there.

    Record Club 6 - Hendrix & Absinthe

    Record Club 6 - Hendrix & Absinthe

    We're back to dive into one of the seminal entries in the Psychedelic Rock canon - Are You Experienced? by Jimi Hendrix.

    And what better mixer to is there match with these far out sounds than the dubiously hallucinogenic spirit, Absinthe.

    Enjoy the spirits, enjoy the sounds, and have fun out there.

    Record Club 5 - Beck with a Blender

    Record Club 5 - Beck with a Blender

    We toast to the end of summer with one of our favorite backyard party albums, 1996s Odelay by Beck. The blend of styles and samples fit perfectly with frozen cocktails so we dusted off the blender and made ourselves some blended versions of of classic summer cocktails, including favorites like the Jungle Bird, and the Espresso Martini.

    Enjoy the spirits, enjoy the sounds, and have fun out there.

    Record Club 4 - Funky Flavors for Prince's Purple Rain

    Record Club 4 - Funky Flavors for Prince's Purple Rain

    We took refuge from a summer thunder shower and listened to Prince's most successful, eclectic album, 1984's Purple Rain. Skye works his magic with some equally energetic summer concoctions, featuring effervescent and colorful riffs on the Negroni, the Cosmo, and more.

    Enjoy the spirits, enjoy the sounds, and have fun out there.

    Record Club 3 - Tequila & Queens of the Stone Age (Era Vulgaris)

    Record Club 3 - Tequila & Queens of the Stone Age (Era Vulgaris)

    Appropriately recorded on Cinqo de Mayo, we dive into our favorite Desert Rock album, 2007's Era Vulgaris by Queens of the Stone Age. Skye works his magic with Tequila to deliver some unique riffs on the Paloma and the Old Fashioned, and manages to curate a tasty menu without resorting to a Margarita.

    This is a heavy record with some even heavier drinks. Enjoy the spirits, enjoy the sounds, and have fun out there.

Fun hang

Full disclosure: I’ve been mixing and editing the most recent episodes since just before the re-vamp and am friends with the hosts, but, as someone who spends hours on these episodes I have to say that when I’m done I genuinely feel like I got to hang out with my buddies, listen to a cool album, and learn a few interesting things about music and/or alcohol. Also, it’s fun to hear the hosts’ energy and inhibitions shift after drink number 2 and into the end of the episode. It’s a good time, you won’t regret it (unless, perhaps, you drink along at home).

Imbibe the Vibes!

This podcast is a lot of fun. i’m always amazed at the amount of things I learn about music listening to this, and the format feels like hanging out with old friends talking over cocktails. Good stuff :-)

A great hang!

A very enjoyable and loose podcast-like hanging out with your friends that happen to also know how to mix drinks-the combo of music chat with mixology is a great pairing!
