In Memory of Trish + The Teddy Boy Cocktail

Like so many fans of the group Broadcast, the news of her death last week came as quite a shock. My heart goes out to her family, friends, and dedicated following who I know are all left with a tremendous hole in their heart. I still can't believe there won't be decades of new music to come from Trish but at least the catalog of music she leaves behind is truly magnificent. Her influence on my me / my music (not to mention her taste in fashion and record collecting) is too massive to begin to accurately calculate and I feel humbled in trying to articulate my sentiments about her at all. I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with Warp via my years at Caroline and I am honored to have been a part of getting those records out to stores in the United States.

We all mourn the loss of people who care about in our own ways and this past weekend I had a small group of friends over to celebrate her life and her music, not just her own but hours of tracks she had compiled for various Broadcast DJ sets and mixes. For the occasion we made a special cocktail and I thought I would share it for no other reason than it tasted quite lovely and enough of them will get you feeling like this image.

I present to you the Teddy Boy which is really just a homemade whiskey sour made with love.
