Get ready for the April Ghoul’s Drive-In Monster Rama this weekend!

This weekend at the Riverside Drive-In Theater in Vandergrift, PA, it’s time for the semi-annual trek to see some of the best movies of all time in the place they were meant to be seen, the drive-in.

It’s time for April Ghoul’s Drive-In Monster Rama!

Admission is still only $10 per person each night (children 12 and under free with adult) and overnight camping is available (breakfast included) for an additional $10 per person.

On Friday night, you’ll get to see…

I’m beyond excited to see Pieces again and Edge of the Axe is a movie I continually try and get people to watch, so I’m even more delirious at the opportunity to watch it in the cool, crisp night air.

Here’s a drink to make and bring along. If you hunt me down — chances are I’ll have on an Argento shirt and a Severin hoodie (plus shorts, because that’s how 48-year-old Western PA teenagers dress) — I may even pour you a cup.

Angela in the Woods AKA Camp Arawak Bugjuice

  • 2 oz. sweet tart moonshine*
  • 2 oz. cranberry juice
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • .75 oz. peach schnapps
  1. Pour everything into a shaker with ice. Shake it up and watch out for curling irons.
  2. Serve with plenty of ice.

We also added a variation.

Russ’s Big Drill AKA Eyes of the Pizza Man

  • 2 oz. cherry bomb moonshine*
  • 3 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. cherry vodka
  • .5 oz. maraschino cherry juice
  1. Mix everything up in a shaker with some ice. Hold on tight to your machete.
  2. Drink with plenty of ice.

*I always use Country Hammer moonshine.

Saturday night starts with werewolves and just gets weird from there.

It usually gets cold at these April shows, so here’s a drink to warm you up.

Where Do You Want to Sleep, Dr. Challis? AKA Season of the Pumpkin Spice White Russian

  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 3 oz. pumpkin spice creamer
  • 2 oz. Kaluha
  • 1 oz. Fireball
  1. Mix it all together and stir with ice. Or, if you’re feeling frisky, heat it up.
  2. Jump into bed with a robot and drink up.

Becca wanted me to add that pumpkin spice creamer may be hard to find this time of the year, so she shared how to make your own:

  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1.25 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 4 tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream

I can’t wait to see everybody this Friday night. Make sure to say hello! I’ll even have a box of DVDs to trade!

  1. Toast spices in a medium saucepan over medium heat for a minute or so. Then, whisk in puree and brown sugar and heat for thirty seconds before taking them off the stove.
  2. Add milk and cream, then whisk.
  3. Cool to room temperature, then use or store for using later.
