How to Pair Music With Cocktails
Sep. 7, 2016
Your taste in music says a lot about you, but can it also inform what you drink? Below, six genres, perfectly paired with six Patrón cocktails.
If you’re listening to Classic Rock:
Beloved by every tequila drinker, the Tequila Sunrise is a cocktail that will remain steadfast even as trends come and go. And just like classic rock, it’s a choice that ages well—you’ll love it today, and only grow fonder in the decades to come.
If you’re listening to Blues:
Roca Old Fashioned
Whether you’re kicking back to the sexy sounds of the blues, or actually have the blues, this cocktail hits all the marks: Sultry? Check. Smooth? Check. Can cure anything? Check… and check.
If you’re listening to Country:
Country music—with their soul-searching, highly narrative lyrics—call for a cocktail with depth and many layers. With several different spirits, Patrón’s Mexican Tea fits the bill.
If you’re listening to Hip Hop:
Challenging the norm is what hip hop is all about, and this spin on the traditional Moscow Mule mixes up conventional standards -- along with plenty of ginger beer and lime.
If you’re listening to Classical:
Sophisticated classical music pairs beautifully with a sophisticated drink like the Silver Sling: sweet sparkling wine, savory vanilla cinnamon syrup, vermouth and Roca Patrón Silver.
If you’re listening to Jazz:
Like jazz, a genre built on improvising around a set harmonic structure, this cocktail transforms a tried-and-true duo (chocolate and orange) into a sweet surprise by marrying orange zest with the decadent Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa. One sip, and you’ll be scattin’ away.
