Rocktails: An Amped Up Spin on Mixology is a cocktail book honoring musicians through the art of libations.

As musicians and singers Kristen Kreft (The Perfect Children/Brian Olive Band/Pearlene) and MayaLou Banatwala (Heavy Hinges) share a passion for the music scene in its entirety. From performing, planning events, and creating ambiance, they both celebrate every morsel of detail that goes into making an evening amazing. This passion pairs well with their love for mixology. They have been rocking behind the bar, side by side, as friends and coworkers for over five years, all the while conjuring up a dream of creating a “Rocktail” book where the drinks demonstrate cocktail knowledge and music appreciation.

This first edition of the Rocktails: An Amped Up Spin on Mixology series, evolved into a documentary of their experiences as a Pop Up Party every second Saturday in 2018 at The Listing Loon in Cincinnati’s eclectic neighborhood of Northside. Each month Kristen and Maya produced their “Rocktails Experience” by hiring the entertainment and creating each menu inspired by the featured bands or DJ’s, in addition to reinventing the physical bar space to transport the patrons to a unique environment each month.
