Is there anything more perfect after a long-ass day of backbreaking or mind-numbing work than picking out your favorite vinyl album, mixing up a drink (or just pouring a double or triple pour of your favorite whiskey), and settling into your favorite chair to tune out the rest of the world for a little while? We think not (especially if you’re listening on one of these systems).

“Booze & Vinyl” (Running Press, 2018)

André Darlington and Tenaya Darlington seem to agree with us, if their new book, Booze & Vinyl, is any indication of their mindset. In the book, they pair up a wide variety of cocktails — some classics, some riffs, and some modern inventions — with 17 different albums from the 2000s all the way back to the 1950s.

To give you a sense of what they’re spinning, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite cocktail and record pairings for you to dig into. Once you’re stirred and shaken your way through these, pick up the book here and check out the rest of boozy vinyl goodness.
