Classixx - ‘Hanging Gardens’ + Sea Breeze
Ingredients: 1 1/2 ounces vodka, 4 ounces cranberry juice, 1 ounce grapefruit juice, lime wedge for garnish.
Mixing Instructions: Build all ingredients in a highball glass filled with ice. Garnish with lime wedge.
Notes: Music has an incredible ability to paint a picture for us; it makes us feel as though we are someplace different, and sometimes, in the best occasions, the place it takes us to is a beach during sunset in Miami circa mid 1980’s. Classixx, an electronic duo composed of childhood friends Michael David and Tyler Blake, have been a staple in taking dance music to the depths it deserves. With their amalgamation of disco, house, funk, spunk, happiness and good vibes, these two could soundtrack anyone’s summer. Classixx have been releasing remixes for a couple years now. They released their single “I’ll Get You” feat. Jeppe in 2009 and finally, in May of this year, released their incredibly stunning debut album, Hanging Gardens. So go ahead and throw this bad boy on the turntable, close your eyes, sip your drink, and imagine yourself driving alongside the beach at dusk in the warm summer breeze.
