158. The Flaming Lips - ‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots' + Rasmopolitan

The Flaming Lips - ‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots' + Rasmopolitan

Ingredients:  1.5 Ounces Vox Raspberry Vodka, 0.5 ounce Cointreau, 1 ounce Cranberry Juice, squeeze of fresh lime juice

Mixing Instructions:  Mix ingredients into a shaker half-filled with ice, strain into Martini glass. Garnish with raspberries or lime peel.

Notes:  The Flaming Lips, and specifically Wayne Coyne, can be a rather divisive conversation topic.  On the one hand, they’re from Oklahoma (of which their loyalty to earns them little more than a rolling of the eyes) and lead singer Coyne can be rather outspoken and abrasive.  The other side of the Coyne (*sigh*… sorry) is that they have a track record of excellent albums and brilliant production that matches well with their live performance grandiosity.  Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is a release that still today sounds like it’s a fresh and forward thinking style of music.  A must-listen, take some time and let Yoshimi play…and of course, mix yourself a delicious pink cocktail to make the experience complete.
