And last, but not least, Fast and Furious Four’s Baby Blue Cocktail. So many delicious Lilac City Cocktail themed cocktails to choose from. Cheers to the amazing special celebrity guests attending Lilac City Comic Con October 2-3, 2021 in Spokane, Washington.
Sweet Jumps Cocktail – Napoleon Dynamite – Jon Heder
1. Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces pineapple juice, 2 ounces Peach Brandy, 2 ounces Tequila and 1 ounce grenadine. Cover and shake until shaker becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted.
2. Strain all ingredients into cocktail glass filled with ice. Garnish with lime wedge as desired. Please drink responsibly.
3. Napoleon Dynamite is a cult classic movie. It is as popular now as it was when originally released. The movie’s catch phrases can be heard to this day in daily conversations. If you haven’t seen the movie yet I highly recommend. Napoleon Dynamite photos are courtesy of IMDB.
Zombie Brain Cocktail – Z Nation – Russell Hodgkinson
1. Add 1 ounce Peach Brandy and 1/4 ounce Blue Curaçao into shot glass. Pour 1 ounce Bailey’s over spoon into shot glass. Add 1/4 ounce grenadine.
2. The Bailey’s might take a moment or two to create the brain effect. The longer you wait the brainier the Bailey’s gets, which in turn makes a thicker shot to drink. Please drink responsibly.
3. Z Nation is a post apocalyptic action, horror, comedy TV series that first aired in September 2014. The final episode aired in December 2018. Of course it has lots of zombies! It’s a man eat man world! Z Nation photos courtesy of IMDB.
Bright Light Cocktail – Gremlins – Mark Dodson
1. Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add 1 ounce Chambord, 1 ounce simple syrup, 1 ounce Midori, 1 ounce Oola Citrus Vodka and 2 ounces lemon juice. Cover and shake cocktail shaker until shaker becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted.
2. Cover and strain all ingredients into cocktail glass filled with ice. Garnish with lemon wedges as desired. Please drink responsibly.
3. The rules are simple: Keep them away from bright light, don’t get them wet, and never ever feed them after midnight. Follow the rules and nothing will go wrong, right?! Mark Dodson and Gremlins photos are courtesy of IMDB.
Baby Blue Cocktail – Fast & Furious 4 – Cesar Garcia
1. Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add 1 ounce light rum, 1 ounce coconut rum, 1 ounce apple vodka and 1 ounce blue curaçao. Cover and shake until shaker becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted.

The Gremlins cocktail sounds really good — what a really cool idea for mixing some drinks with a theme. These would be perfect for movie nights to match the drinks to make it a whole experience. Thanks for sharing!
