What alcoholic beverage pairs best with the Beatles, the Glee soundtrack or another artist or band you're listening to? Drinkify is a new site that'll tell you.
The drink recommendations are served up by connecting Last.fm, the Echo Nest (which provides terms and genres as well as speed for artists' tracks), and a proprietary drink database, according to the developers.
Drinkify plays music in the background while suggesting drink recipes, which, as far as I could tell, were based on genre and the speed of the song.
Some of the suggestions make sense: whiskey and Johnny Cash, for example, while others might have you scratching your head (scotch for the Glee soundtrack and merlot for Frank Sinatra; to me, they seem better switched). Still, it's fun and interesting playing around with the site just to see the drink-and-music pairings. Maybe Drinkify could inspire your next cocktail party.
