By the Way, I Forgive You


Smooth, mellowed out with lingering spice and distinct Americana pop like Brandi Carlile’s album, the “By The Way, I Forgive You” cocktail is created with Dry Lambrusco, grapefruit soda, lime and habanero bitters.

Dirty Computer

Caperitif Aperitivo, ginger syrup, lime and blood orange soda make up this lush, bright and liberating cocktail inspired Janelle Monae’s “Dirty Computer” album.

Invasion of Privacy

Like Cardi B’s album “Invasion of Privacy,” this cocktail is fierce yet vulnerable with a lush sweetness. It’d made with Amontillado Sherry, orange and angostura Bitters, lemon, luxardo syrup and pommeau.


Golden Hour

The Golden Hour, created with champagne, passion fruit, lemon, soda and orange bitters captures the celebratory happiness and brightness of Kacey Musgrave’s voice in her GRAMMY nominated album.


Sparkling sweet Cava Reserva and Amontillado Sherry is blurred with the smoothness of pistachio orgeat an

d mint, they are two sides of the same cocktail inspired by Drake’s “Scorpion” that plays like a double album.



The H.E.R. cocktail is made with sparkling rose, lavender syrup, lemon and orange bitters. A little sparkly, both sweet, sour and bitter, its inspired by the R&B’s self titled album.

Beerbongs & Bentleys

Made with Stiegl Radler Lemon, chamomile syrup, lemon and soda, this drink is sunny and fun with a slight breeziness like Post Malone’s voice.
