Drinkify selects your music-listening cocktail companion

Posted By on Wed, Nov 9, 2011 at 4:32 PM

It's likely none of us need any assistance in choosing drinks to enjoy while listening to music, but Drinkify offers some amusing cocktail suggestions to complement your musical whims. Everyone on the Internet is tweetin' and Facebookin' about this app, which was created during this year's Music Hack Day Boston in the course of "24 boozy hours," according to the Drinkify website.

Type in the band or artist of your choice, and Drinkify will generate a cocktail for you — unless it's a hipstery kind of act, in which case the site will simply suggest PBR. The app is connected to the streaming service Last.fm so you can listen to some music on the site.

I decided to see what suggestions Drinkify has for some homegrown acts. I became immediately suspicious at the site's suggestion for Lil Wayne — everyone knows the Lil Wayne drink is a purple-colored cocktail of cough syrup served in a styrofoam cup.

Hit the jump for more cocktails. I think "The Caddywhompus" looks especially tasty.
