This has become my new favorite website. I stole it from my friend Lauren and until she caves and begins blogging again, I'll continue to steal wonderful things from her... (so there, lovely lady, you've officially been warned)

Now that I've seen it, I don't know how I've lived this long without Drinkify.

You simply type in the music you want to hear then this wonder of a website tells you the perfect drink to imbibe along with your chosen music. AND it plays you a song

I was slightly skeptical at first, but I have yet to be disappointed.

Some are Obvious...
Snoop Dog = 10 oz Gin + 10 oz Wheatgrass Juice + 12 oz Lemon Juice (served laid back, I'm guessing)
BIG PUN = 1 bottle champagne (hot tub- poppin bubbly)

Some are Snarky...
the indy rock group, with hipster queen Zooey Deschanel, SHE AND HIM = 1 PBR (my guess was Franzia but I find their answer equally acceptable)

Mostly they're just fun to see...
OVER THE RHINE = 4 oz old rip van winkle bourbon and 4 oz pineapple juice (yep.)

JAY -Z = 10 oz gin, served on the rocks (on point)

LIONEL RICHIE = 2 oz Damson Gin, served neat (see what happened there, he's 8 oz less gin than Jay and I'm okay with that... it's just, is that enough alcohol to last 'all night long'?)

COLTRANE = 4 oz red wine, served neat (check)

TRIBE CALLED QUEST = 6 oz Gin + 6 oz Rose's Lime Juice + 1 bottle Worcestershire sauce (I would have guessed Vodka and Dr Pepper but I'm quickly learning I don't know like Drinkify knows)

THE BLACK KEYS = 8 oz Canadian Club Whiskey + 8 oz Roses Lime Juice + 10 oz Rum, Fucking Rum (case in point, can't argue with Drinkify)

Question: Is it sad that an alarming number of my beloved bands came up with 1 bottle of red wine - one entire bottle - that's some mournful music!
(wait, before you kindly answer 'no' the "is it sad" question, please consider the fact that I spent the better part of a day playing on this site - at one point I typed in Nickleback and said out loud "please be white wine spritzer, please be white wine spritzer.")

  1. Oh yes, I love it. Although Drinkify is honest, I alsmost wish it would sugar-coat it for me sometimes. I looked up Foo Fighters & came back with "Miller High Life". I hung my head in shame & said "Touche, Drinkify... touche."
