FRIDAY Drive-in Asylum Double Feature!

This Friday — yes, Friday! — travel to the Groovy Doom Facebook page at 8 PM for another double feature evening! We’re about to travel to 1977, which I always refer to as the end of the world, as pre-millennial tension gives way to serial killing and mayhem.

Up first…the one and done director/writer/producer/editor/stuntman and probaly the caterer too Dave Adams created a movie that posits that Berkowitz wasn’t the only little brat driven to ritualistic murder.

For your drinking pleasure, may I present…

Son of Sam (based on this recipe)

  • 1 1/2 ounces light rum (Bacardi Silver is a decent one)
  • 1/2 ounce apricot brandy (Jacquin’s is a good brand)
  • 1/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grenadine
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  1. Fill your shaker with ice until the dog next door tells you to stop, but probably around half-full. Pour all the ingredients in and mix well.
  2. Strain into the glass of your choice. Some say a cocktail glass but I’m probably going to use my Profundo Russo mug.

Our second film is made on a $3,000 budget 1977 exploitation film that has plenty of credits, but most of them belonging to one man: Roger Watkins, who also made the porn films Corruption and Her Name Was Lisa. It was shot on a camera given to the director by Otto Preminger.

Serial Killer (based on this recipe)

  • 1 ounce coconut rum
  • 1 ounce spiced rum (I’m going with Kraken here)
  • 1 ounce light rum
  • 2 1/2 ounces orange juice
  • 2 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 3/4 ounces grenadine
  1. Mix everything in your shaker and make the ingredients consider how their children will come at them with knives.
  2. Strain well, pour over ice and keep reminding yourself it’s only a cocktail.
