We’re so excited that so many of you come and watch movies with us every Saturday night. If you’re up for a late night of watching and talking all things fantastic film, visit with us on the Groovy Doom Facebook page at 8 PM East Coast Time.

We set up the shows, share ads for them, make a cocktail themed to the film and then watch the films on Tuvi (or on DVD if you have them!).

Up first, it’s a movie about a young girl growing up and everyone else dying all around her. That’s right — the underrated Sweet Sixteen. You can watch it on Tubi.

I’m so excited to watch this again. Also, I’m really excited to make this drink!

Sweet Sixteen (based on this recipe)

  • 1.5 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • Dash grenadine
  • 1 tsp. simple syrup
  • Bitter lemon (or lemon seltzer, if you can’t find it)
  1. Pour gin, lime juice, grenadine and simple syrup with ice in your shaker. Shake up, then pour over ice.
  2. Fill glass with bitter lemon.

Our next movie is Abby! This is a movie we’ve wanted to show since the very first episode. We’re going to go nuts talking about this one. You can watch it on YouTube.

The recipe for this one is based on one of the drinks that Abby may have ordered as she prowls the bars of Louisville.

  • .5 oz. lime juice
