Mixtapes & Mixology is a new podcast from The Bridge, Flatland, and Recommended Daily that mashes up the Kansas City music and cocktail scene. Each week, we tell the story of one band, one song, and one bartender. Then we ask the bartender to listen to that song and make us a drink based on how the track makes them feel. You can download the podcast and check out this week’s artist BLKFLANL.
1 1/2 ounces Gin
3/4 ounce Falernum
1/2 ounce Lime juice
1/2 ounce Grapefruit juice
Edible flower (garnish, optional)
Pour the gin, Falernum, lime juice and grapefruit juice in a pint glass. Add the ice cubes. Shake for 10 to 15 seconds.
Fill another glass with crushed ice. Pour the spirits and juice mixture over the crushed ice. Garnish with an edible flower (you can often find them at local farmers’ markets).
Mixtapes and Mixology is a four-part podcast series that culminates in a live cocktail-and-music event on Thursday, September 15. Find information and tickets here.
