Ok. So we’ve all been there. You’ve invited a few friends over for drinks after work and plugged in your iPod or phone for some tunes to help everyone relax a bit. You pull out the blender, scoop in the ice, open your Blender Boyz drink mix (maybe add a little extra something to help everyone relax a little), dump it in, blend it up, pour it in cups, and smiles all around.

All of the sudden, as if your iPod is determined to put a kink in your mojo, the shuffle button decides to play a Celine Dion song. Granted, she’s our favourite Canadian diva powerhouse, too, but that’s a party killjoy that even a Blender Boyz drink mix can’t do much to save. So in order to save your reputation, and that of our awesome drink mixes, we’ve decided to help you out by providing you with a playlist mix to accompany your drink mix. Play responsibly- we’ve pretty much just accumulated a list of songs that mention margaritas, piña coladas, daiquiris or cocktails or drinking. It’s a random list, but there isn’t a single song from the motion picture film Titanic.
