Updated on March 26, 2017

Drinks With A Movie

We all know that movie and popcorn go great together but when you are at home drinks and movie make it even better. Here are 7 fun and great tasting drinks to go with your movie night at home and whether you enjoy these alone or make a party out of it you will be glad you tried these drinks.

Vampire Movie - Red Snapper Cocktail

If you are into watching a blood sucking vampire movie then this is the drink for you. The Red Snapper Cocktail is from the King Cole bar in the St Regis Hotel in New York and provides that blood lusting look without too much tomato.

Whether you are doing a sparkly vampire Twilight Saga night or are into Blade or another traditional vampire flick this will be a great drink to enjoy with your movie.

1 oz. Belvedere vodka
2 oz. tomato juice
1 dash lemon juice
2 dashes salt
2 dashes black pepper
2 dashes cayenne pepper
3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce

Combine ingredients together in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously. Strain over ice and garnish with a lemon wedge.

Deadpool Shots

If its time for watching a little Deadpool then you need these shots to go along with it to make it perfect. These shots look amazing and taste even better. Below is the video from Tipsy Bartender showing you exactly how to make this look just like the photo.

Guardians of the Galaxy - The Green Gamora

While we wait for the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie premiere it's a great time to chill and enjoy re-watching the first Guardians and this Green Gamora cocktail is a great pairing to enjoy with the movie!

*makes 2 regular cocktails or one large shake-sized cocktail Ingredients:

4 oz prepared Trader Joe's green tea latte (chilled)

1 oz Smirnoff Whipped Cream vodka

1 oz Nigori Sake Whipped Cream (spike with 2 oz whipped cream vodka)

Thai basil (for garnish)


Directions: Mix 4 tablespoons of Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea Latte mix with 8 oz of hot water. Stir to dissolve, let cool, then chill in refrigerator. In a shaker tin, add 4 oz of chilled green tea latte liquid, whipped cream vodka and sake (make sure the shake the Nigori sake so it's cloudy before you pour it in). Shake tin until it's so cold that you can't hold it any longer. Strain over fresh ice and top with whipped cream and an optional Thai basil leaf garnish. P.S. I followed a simple online whipped cream recipe to make mine at home and then added 2 oz of the whipped cream vodka for added flavor.

Top Gun - The Maverick Cocktail

When you need a little 80's throw back movie time Top Gun is always a great option. The Maverick cocktail is drink that has been around for awhile but the name fits perfectly with the movie so here it is in the amaretto version. If you feel the need for speed this drink will have you feeling ready to go but stay home after drinking this and play a driving or flying game instead.

1 1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz amaretto almond liqueur
1 oz pineapple juice
2 tsp Galliano herbal liqueur

Shake ingredients with ice; strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice

Harry Potter - Polyjuice Potion Cocktail

Feeling a little nostalgic? Enjoy the Harry Potter movie series and your own Polyjuice Potion for a fun movie fest!

Note: The green juice can be made at home or from the grocery and should include some citrus and at least one fruit, like apple or pineapple, for sweetness. The Chartreuse liqueur adds an interesting herbal note, but you can skip if you’d rather (it’s expensive).

1.5 oz gin
1.5 oz fresh-pressed or bottled green juice
1 oz green Chartreuse
½ oz lime juice
7-Up or Sprite

Shake gin, juices, and Chartreuse in a shaker with ice. Strain into a glass (you can serve up or over ice) and top with a splash of soda if you’d like it a little lighter.

Star Wars - The Alderaan Cocktail

Even if it isn't May 4th (you know, Star Wars day) a good Star Wars movie night is always a great option and when you make this Alderaan Cocktail it will make it even more fun. Check out the link below as well for how to the get the Death Star ice cube mold!

1 oz Bacardi Black Razz Rum

1 oz Blue Curacao

2 oz Cranberry Juice

Shake well and strainer over ice and top with Death Star ice cube

Use this mold set for the perfect finish!

Incredible Hulk or Avenger's - The Hammered Hulk
