Reviews

"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


"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
"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 André 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

"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
"Brother-and-sister authors André 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
". . . a unique take that grabs your attention like a record scratch in a monotony of drink books."
