There are two things that only come twice a year, Cinco De Mayo and a new Von Kaiser album. Fortunately, both of those things are right around the corner. To help celebrate, the gang over here at Nightride FM smashed together two of the best things in the universe, synthwave and booze! We proudly present the official drink for the launch of Von Kaiser's new album, the Vaporita!
Legend has it that the the Vaporita was actually invented in 1983 as a way to ward off evil ghosts of Miami. The concoction was poured into large vats tossed around the village square. It was believed that the spirits would fear the pink glow and leave the village in peace.
It turns out not only was it a proven method back in the day for warding off evil spirits, this "spirit" was actually great to drink! Not only is it a tasty drink, it's an awesome way to celebrate two of our favorite things. Cinco De Mayo and the newest Von Kaiser album Ghosts of Miami!
Enough talk. It's time to make the official drink to celebrate the new Von Kaiser album Ghosts of Miami.. the Vaporita!
1 cup Tequila (preferably golden)
1/2 cup Peach Liquor (Schnapps or Peachtree is fine)
1/2 cup lime juice Table spoon powdered sugar (stir til dissolved)
1 cup Pink Cranberry juice
Garnish with lime if your feeling fancy
Now that you have your drink, where's the party? Well friend, you're in luck!
Join Dennis G and Neon Fawkes along with Karin Zoe Lee and special guests Von Kaiser themselves for an album kick off party like none other! It will be a night of drinking, music, tasteless jokes, arm wrestling, and whatever else we can get away "on the air." The party kicks off at 9 PM EST on May 4th on Nightride.FM!
