In celebration of the most passive-aggressively named album of all time, those charmers at Snake Oil Cocktail are taking over Searsucker's second-level, private dining room to present Nirvana's Nevermind as it's never been experienced before:
as a musical starring the cast of Smash!!! in cocktail form. Each of the 12 (yep) track-repping drinks are backed by 12 "mini sets" from DJ Bobby Calabrese (who remembers “doing some heavy 8th-grade petting to Nevermind”), and, much like a well-composed album, every cocktail is designed to transition seamlessly to the next by carrying over a single ingredient.
So throw on your grungiest flannel and prepare to take down:
Smells Like Teen Spirit: Even though teens normally smell like AXE body spray and Lubriderm, the lead track'll be rep'd by an even more intoxicating mix of Hendrick's, strawberry jam & strawberry bitters
In Bloom: Do you like all of Nirvana's pretty songs, and like to sing along to them and shoot guns? Well, even if you know not what that means, you're going to love this concoction that picks up right where they left off with the strawberry bitters, then spikes it with Salerno, sea salt, and blood orange
Lithium: Just because your friends are all in your head and you're so ugly you break mirrors, doesn't mean you can't enjoy a fine mixup of Sailor Jerry, Sauvignon Blanc, grapefruit, and frozen absinthe. Man, this song was depressing.
On A Plain: This mix of Angostura bitters, Glenfiddich, orange foam with an orange twist, and honeycomb is so tasty, even Kurt wouldn't be able to complain... though he likely would anyway.
