We mentioned last week that there are lots of upcoming horror movies we are excited about. One film that has the horror community pretty excited is Ready or Not. Inspired by the wedding aspect of the film, we’ve put together a fun way to enjoy champagne with a bit of a horror vibe. Not only that, but we are giving away VIP Advanced Screening Passes! So get reading!
“Ready or Not follows a young bride (Samara Weaving) as she joins her new husband’s (Mark O’Brien) rich, eccentric family (Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell) in a time-honored tradition that turns into a lethal game with everyone fighting for their survival.”
The Survivor’s Celebration was primarily inspired by the tradition of drinking champagne on your wedding day. We decided that rather than making a complex cocktail, we would create something that can be easily made. After all, after surviving your in-laws you might need a drink and quickly! In terms of ingredients, the raspberry dessert sauce is great for this recipe because it really holds its shape nicely when you’re serving the drink. It isn’t until you actually drink it that it blends into the champagne.
In addition to this fun and easy cocktail recipe, we are giving away 10 pairs of VIP Advanced Screening Passes to an advanced showing of Ready or Not! The showing will be held at Harkins Tempe Marketplace on Monday, August 19th. The screening starts at 7 pm and the winners should arrive at 6:15 in order to guarantee their seating. Winners will be selected on Friday, August 16th. Cheers!
Inspired by the wedding vibes of Ready or Not, The Geeks have put together a tasty yet gruesome way to enjoy champagne, The Survivor's Celebration.
- 1 bottle Brut Champagne
- Raspberry Dessert Sauce
- Chocolate Bitters
- Raspberries for Garnish
- Line the rim of 4 champagne flutes with the raspberry dessert sauce.
- Carefully pour an even amount of champagne between the 4 glasses. (We used a funnel so as to not ruin the sides)

- Serve with a raspberry for garnish.
