Ben’s 10 Volume XLIII: Rock and Roll Refreshments

Most of us will never partake in the excesses and debauchery associated with the lifestyles of some of the most celebrated rock stars. It’s unlikely you’ll ever drive a car into a swimming pool, throw a television out of a hotel window or engage in sexual depravity that would make porn stars blush. I did some research and discovered some of these musician’s favorite drinks and added in some additional ingredients to really capture their essence. Feel free to try and mix up any of these concoctions, but be warned you may inadvertently end up participating in some unthinkably indulgent acts.

Kickstart My Heart
Nikki Sixx’s cocktail is 64 ounces and has Red Bull, Monster, and Rockstar energy drinks mixed with Ketel One vodka. Upon finishing the drink you’ll feel like Sixx when he was given a shot of Naloxone after being declared dead in the back of an ambulance after a heroin overdose.

The Jelly Doughnut
According to his own autobiography, Alice Cooper masturbated into pastries, creating his own “jelly doughnuts.” His trademark drink contains Jameson whiskey, chunks of the aforementioned donuts, ginger ale, and chicken blood.

The Crazy Train
Inspired by Ozzy Osbourne, this cocktail includes El Conde Azul Blanco tequila, bat’s blood, lime juice, and Nikki Sixx’s urine.

Whole Lotta Love
Led Zeppelin’s favorite libation was a combination of Ketel One vodka and small pieces of mud shark.

I Feel Good
This drink is simply port wine with a generous amount of PCP, James Brown’s drug of choice. It will make you get into a high-speed chase with authorities while carrying an unlicensed pistol.

After Hours
This mixture inspired by Lou Reed is Bushmill’s whiskey, cola, and formaldehyde.

Love Letter
R. Kelly doesn’t consume this alcoholic beverage, but thoroughly enjoys watching young women drink it. It consists solely of Moet champagne and his own urine.

Soul For Sale
Guitar player Robert Johnson supposedly sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his talent. You’ll probably want to stay away the beverage that allegedly killed the Blues legend at 27. It contained whiskey and strychnine.

Look What the Cat Dragged In
C.C. Deville’s custom drink includes Tanqueray gin, bleach, fruit juices, hairspray, and cocaine.

Whiskey Bar
A drink inspired by Jim Morrison, the Whiskey Bar consists solely of Jack Daniel’s, Seagram’s, Wild Turkey, and Jim Beam. Combine equal amounts of all four whiskeys in a glass and enjoy!


About Ben Allen

Our music editor Ben Allen was born one stormy evening in a quaint Northern California coastal village. Upon birth he was immediately exposed to the soothing analog sounds of artists such as Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Paul Simon, Captain Beefheart and Santana. As the lad grew, so did his appreciation for an assortment of abrasive hard rock. A pubescent flirtation with butt metal was shattered in the early 1990’s by exposure to Nirvana and other so-called “Alternative” bands. While in college, our protagonist became a DJ on a local station, and began work as a freelance music journalist. During this period he became entranced with artists such as Tortoise, Slint, Modest Mouse, Guided By Voices and Pavement. Currently Allen resides in Arcata, CA where he continues to obsess and salivate over new recordings by his favorite artists. He works with music industry people to ensure that Savage Henry’s contributors receive music and other promotional materials. He also writes a silly monthly list titled “Ben’s 10.”
