The Spring Standards - "Here We Go" (MP3) + A French Kiss Cocktail Recipe
Today we bring you a new tune from the Spring Standards, a super poppy young band currently out touring with Rhett Miller.
Today we bring you a new tune from the Spring Standards, a super poppy young band currently out touring with Rhett Miller and playing a number of their own dates (list below). The band's new album is yellow//gold and "Here We Go" is an intensely catchy pop tune from the record about true love and, yes, desire. So, we think the perfect cocktail to drink while playing this song is something romantic and bright, a drink I call the French Kiss. It goes something like this...
2 oz. UV Vodka (either unflavored or citron)
1/2 oz. limoncello
dash of Cointreau or Luxardo triple sec
fresh lemon juice (not from a bottle, but the actual fruit)
Mix then add items below:
1 basil leaf
2 raspberries (optional)
a dash of Chambord poured into the mixed cocktail (will form a beautiful red bottom to the drink... use a small amount as Chambord is very sweet)
And now for the song...
