Allen Stone - ‘Allen Stone’ + Jeremiah
Ingredients: 1/3 ounce creme de cacao, 1/3 ounce white creme de menthe, 1/3 ounce Kahlua coffee liqueur, ice, milk
Mixing Instructions: Mix all ingredients together except milk in a cocktail shaker. Add ice then fill shaker with milk. Shake vigorously, pour into a hurricane glass and serve.
Notes: Sometimes you find an album that you can’t wait to play for someone. A sound so exceptional, so out-of-the-ordinary that you throw it boldly on the platter and simply sit back, watch and wait as the same feeling that flowed through you flows through your unsuspecting companion. This has been my experience everytime I’ve played R&B artist Allen Stone’s self-titled LP for a friend. The son of a small-town WA preacher, Stone grew up with gospel influences like Mary Mary and Kirk Franklin, but discovered Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Al Green as a sixteen year old…and so it began. Backed by an insanely talented band, the young Stone delivers an instant classic tailor-made for the vinyl format. Mix a smooth & sweet cocktail and drink it all in.
