127. Tycho - ‘Dive’ + Ruby Relaxer

Tycho - ‘Dive’ + Ruby Relaxer

Ingredients: 1 ounce peach schnapps, 1 ounce vodka, 1 ounce Malibu coconut rum, pineapple juice, cranberry juice.

Mixing Instructions: pour schnapps, vodka and rum into a chilled cocktail glass.  Almost fill with pineapple juice, add a splash of cranberry juice and serve.

Notes: There are times when you listen to an album because you need to go somewhere else.  Tycho’s sunset-surfing ambient album, Dive, is the perfect vehicle for such a journey, providing a cathartic escape to those in need of a late fall getaway.  The album is upbeat without being cheesy, light without being shallow.  One can’t escape the feeling of being oceanside throughout much of the album with synthesizers providing a constant wave-like feeling to the production.  This is an album to enjoy with a similarly-hued cocktail on a night when anything else seems like too much.
