I guess when you spend a lot of time passed out, the world marches on and all the great ideas come from other people. That’s okay with me, because I barely have two brain cells left to rub together.
Case in point: drinkify.org. “Created in twenty-four boozy hours,” by Lindsay Eyink, Hannah Donovan, and Matthew Ogle, Drinkify “automatically generates the perfect* cocktail recipe to accompany any music.”
What a brilliant idea! In my house there’s always music on, and I don’t always feel qualified to pick the exact right libation to go with it. Perhaps Drinkify could help me take my drinking up a notch.
So…right now we’re playing the ATLAS SOUND. Let’s see what Drinkify recommends…
- 1 Brooklyn Lager -Serve cold.
Now I’m typing in BJORK.
- 1 Blue Paddle -Serve cold. Garnish with fire.
☻ OMG, so awesome!!!
Let’s try something different…I’m typing in WAGNER.
😦 Hmmmm…not so sure about that. Let’s try something else on the dramatic side. Typing in TOM WAITS.
- 1 Sierra Nevada Pale Ale -Serve cold.
😦 😦 No way. Inadequate. Let’s try one more….ROLLING STONES.
- 10 oz. Rum -Serve on rocks. Garnish with cocktail onions.
😀 Now that’s more like it!!!
Okay, let’s try something that actually plays a lot in my house: THE WIGGLES.
- 2 oz. Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon
- 2 oz. Coco López
- 4 oz. Rum
Combine in shaker and strain into cocktail glass. Serve.
:DD My faith is returning. For a second I thought randomness was playing a role in Drinkify’s selections. But this last selection can be no accident—the people at Drinkify must realize that when the WIGGLES are playing relentlessly in your house, copious amounts of alcohol are called for.
*May not actually be perfect.
