Louder than Life Cocktail: Judas Priest-Inspired "Electric Eye"

Louder than Life Cocktail: Judas Priest-Inspired

On October 4-5, the first-ever Louder than Life festival will bring music, whiskey, and “gourmet man food” together in Louisville, Kentucky. We’re counting down to the big weekend with recipes from some of the performing artists themselves, as well as band-inspired cocktails courtesy of one of our favorite rock-and-roll bars, Idle Hands at 25 Avenue B in New York City. We’ll be posting these every week until the last week of September when all the recipes and cocktails will be compiled in a Louder than Life eBook that will be available free download.

We’re also offering you, the fans, the chance to get your favorite band-inspired recipe or cocktail in the eBook. Email your recipe to:
