The Beatles - ‘Revolver’ + Cola de Lagarto
Ingredients: 6 ounces dry white wine, 2 1/2 ounces vodka, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon green creme de menthe, 4 ice cubes.
Mixing Instructions: Shake mixture vigorously in a cocktail shaker and strain into a tall glass.
Notes: The seventh studio album from the Beatles and arguably their best, Revolver found many of the initial psychedelic threads in Rubber Soul and followed them to their glorious end…an end which happened to be 20 years ahead of their peers. With a reported 300 hours in the studio, the Fab Four’s innovation touched not just their lyrics and instrumentation, but the recording process as well, to include reversed guitar, tape loops and various vocal effects never before used. Featuring “Taxman”, with George Harrison on vocals, “Eleanor Rigby”, one of McCartney’s greatest songs, and “Tomorrow Never Knows”, a Dalai Lama-inspired Lennon masterpiece, this is an album you must pay homage to at least once in your life, simply out of respect for music as an art form and in this case, as a work of overwhelming genius.
