Can I Mix You a Drink?
T-Pain shares stories and musings alongside elegant cocktail creations in his mixology collection Can I Mix You A Drink?. The book itself is gorgeous, ornately designed, perfectly photographed, and styled with a black and gold color scheme. Each page contains a new drink recipe, as described in T-Pain’s witty voice. He sprinkles in anecdotes and observations from his own life with every drink.
The drinks themselves are pretty intricate but not too complex for the beginner bartender. A lot of the recipes do contain a specialty liquor that you may not already have on your shelf, although many of them overlap, so you can splurge on a new liquor and try out a few different drinks with it. T-Pain also tells you about his favorite cheap alternatives to the fancy liquors, so you can make substitutions where you see fit.
I haven’t yet tried a drink in Can I Mix You A Drink? that wasn’t good, and it’s especially fun to tell your happy-hour guests that your recipe is courtesy of the one and only T-Pain. I also highly recommend this book as a fun birthday or holiday gift!
