The rapper/songwriter/producer loves to entertain in many ways, including fixing cocktails for friends. One look at his discography will give you a hint as to how important cocktails are in his life and, to leave no stone unturned, T-Pain has teamed up with Beard Award-winning mixologist, Maxwell Britten, to form a guide of favorite drinks tied to some of his best songs.
In 2007, "rappa ternt sanga" T-Pain released his hit single "Can I Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin')," propelling the artist to mainstream royalty. Since then, the Tallahassee, Florida native has secured his position as one of the most successful and diverse hip-hop artists in the world. It all started, really, with a song about liquor. T-Pain's extensive career has been punctuated by libations. It's been a part of his music, his business acumen (having secured a number of ambassador deals with liquor brands like Jose Cuervo), and his overall persona. Now, T-Pain brings his love of mixology and music in book form, titled Can I Mix You A Drink? Working with Mixologist Maxwell Britten, former Bar Director to Brooklyn's James Beard Award Winning Maison Premiere, T-Pain sets cocktails to music. Each drink has been carefully curated to reflect a sentiment from one of his hit songs. Drink by drink, T-Pain explores levels of new flavors (and potencies) to create a work that can be used for parties, local bars, pre-gaming before the club, or even just a quiet night at home. It's nearly impossible not to hear T-Pain's music as you read through the drinks and their unique combinations and names. Considering T-Pain is known for unorthodox mixes in his music, expect the same from his drinks, along with some classic cocktails modified by T-Pain himself. Whether you're a fan of T-Pain or a fan of drink-making, Can I Mix You A Drink? is the cocktail book for you.
