Make some rockin’ cocktails with new music-themed recipe book

It’s hard to deny that rock ‘n’ roll and alcoholic beverages go together.

They’ve got such a symbiotic relationship, in fact, that author Mitchell Beazley has created an entire recipe book combining rockin’ songs with cocktails.

The recipe book, “Pretty Fly for a Mai Tai” (Octopus Publishing, $12.99) — divided cleverly into sections “Side A,” “Interlude” and “Side B” — features fun puns and wordplay like Bohemian Daiquiri, a rum drink named after Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and Eye of the Jäger, a Jägermeister concoction paying homage to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.”

Here are a couple of other cocktail recipes based off rock ‘n’ roll songs — or, as Beazley calls them, “rocktails.”

Highball to Hell

(Inspired by “Highway to Hell,” AC/DC)

4 oz. brandy

2 oz. Cointreau

8 oz. bitter lemon

Garnish lemon slices

Pour the brandy, Cointreau and bitter lemon into a mixing glass and stir well. Put 8 to 12 ice cubes into two highball glasses and pour the mixture over the ice.

Decorate with lemon slices and serve with straws.

Jumpin’ Jack Splash

(Inspired by “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” the Rolling Stones)

4 oz. Jack Daniel’s

4 tsp. caster sugar

12 mint leaves, plus sprigs for garnish

6 peach slices

6 lemon slices, plus extra for garnish

Muddle the mint leaves, peach and lemon slices, and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Add the bourbon and some ice cubes and shake well.

Strain over cracked ice into 2 old-fashioned glasses. Decorate each with a mint sprig and a lemon slice.
