This week, A.C. Nicholas joins Bill and me for two island set movies, starting at 8pm EST on the Groovy Doom Facebook and YouTube channel.

Up first, Deathmoon which is on YouTube.

Each week, we watch two movies but we also discuss them, show the ads and have a drink for each film. The recipes this week come from the book Smuggler’s Cove: Exotic Cocktails, Rum, and the Cult of Tiki by Martin and Rebecca Cate with some minor modifications. Thanks to Mark Dockum for giving me this great book.

The first drink is based on the Hawaiian Sunset from Las Vegas’ Aku Aku Polynesian Restaurant, which was inside the sadly lost Stardust Casino.

Cubby’s Cove

  • 1 1/2 oz. vodka
  • 1/2 oz. orgeat (or you can substitute almond syrup)
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  1. Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Strain into a chilled glass and get ready to howl.

Our second movie is the. absolutely incredible Hard Ticket to Hawaii and put the kids to bed early, because this movie has it all and by all, I mean a lot of boobs. You can watch it on Tubi and YouTube.

Here’s the second drink. It’s based on the Sidewider’s Fang from Lanai in San Mateo, California.

Radioactive Toilet Snake

  • 1 oz. Kraken
  • 1 oz. Hurricane Proof Rum
  • 1 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. orange juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. passion fruit syrup (or juice, I mean, I’m in Pittsburgh so good luck finding this)
  • 3 oz. seltzer
  1. Shake all ingredients with crushed ice and several ice cubes.
  2. Pour in a glass and close the lid.

See you Saturday!
