97. The White Stripes - ‘White Blood Cells’ + Alabama Slammer

The White Stripes - ‘White Blood Cells’ + Alabama Slammer

Ingredients: 3/4 ounce amaretto, 3/4 ounce Southern Comfort, 3/4 ounce sloe gin, 4 ounces orange juice

Mixing Instructions: Mix all ingredients and serve over ice in a highball glass.

Notes:  Jack and Meg White’s third album, and their first breakout success, came about after one week of practice and four days in the studio.  Recording engineer Stuart Sikes recalled in an interview, “Jack told me more than once not to make it sound too good…Basically he wanted it as raw as possible, but better than if it was recorded in somebody’s living room."  It worked.  With hits like "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground" "Hotel Yorba" and "Fell In Love with a Girl" this is the album to pull out for people who lament that all the good rock music happened in the 60’s and 70’s.  Throw it on the turntable and sip an Alabama Slammer while the White’s take them to school.
