Of all the slashers, The Prowler just may be my favorite. Is it because everyone seems like they’re in some kind of dream? Is it the World War II opening and soldier slasher villain? Or is it because Tom Savini literally went wild with every gory impulse he had? Who can say!
You can watch The Prowler on Tubi with us on Saturday night at 11 PM EST.
Here’s the recipe for this week! In tribute to this film’s other title of Rosemary’s Killer, I decided to go Prohibition Era cocktail this week.
Rosemary’s Bee’s Knees
- 2 oz. gin
- .75 oz. lemon juice
- .5 oz. rosemary honey syrup
- .75 oz. orange juice
- To make the rosemary honey syrup, bring a 1/2 cup of water and a 1/2 cup of honey to a boil for five minutes, stirring until the honey dissolves. Reduce heat to low, add five sprigs of rosemary and cook overcovered for half an hour while you stir occasionally. Strain and throw away the rosemary. You may want to do this a day or so before and then place it in your refrigerator.
- The rest is easy: just mix it all together in a shaker and shake it up until you see the whites of their eyes pop out. Serve over ice with a sprig of rosemary and some lemon peel, if you’re fancy and going to a post-World War II dance. Just watch out for knives, bayonets and pitchforks.
