Mix on Tap: Take a Rest

20 Mar

Mary Velo

My apologies for the lack of posts over the past few days. I have been swamped at the day gig and losing a lot of sleep over a meeting that only lasts 3 days, but that takes a ton of time to prepare for. Nevertheless, I am basically back in business – at least as far as Retail DJ is concerned.

Despite the recent (and ongoing) work-related stress, the recent turn in our temporature here in NYC reminded me that the lazy days of summer are coming soon and a little bit more relaxation will be built into the day simply because it’s a little hard to concentrate when you’re sweating to death. In the meantime, I thought I’d supply you all with 2 mixes that will help you startout your spring with the mellow tone of warmer days  and hotter nights ;- )

the music: System Sounds no. 1 Mixed by Mary Velo (tracklist after the jump)

the drink: Goose Chase

This is a modified version of Grey Goose’s “L’Orange Raspberry Tea Cocktail .” I named it “Goose Chase” because of a) the Grey Goose, and b) the most famous American chaser: cranberry juice

ingredients: 1 part cranberry juice, 2 parts Grey Goose L’Orange flavored vodka, 2 tablespoons of lime juice (per serving), Maraschino cherries and an orange slice to serve
