This week on Alcohollywood, we’re finally tiptoeing our way into Nicolas Cage territory with the 1988 horror-comedy Vampire’s Kiss! Follow high-powered literary agent Peter Loew (Cage) as he slowly loses his mind after an encounter with a young woman who is potentially a vampire (Jennifer Beals).
Apart from that bare-bones plot, watch as Cage kills pigeons, shouts at his secretary (Maria Conchita Alonso), and generally overacts himself into oblivion. Luckily, we’ve got our custom drink and rules (well, one rule) for you to get through this 80s gem!

DRINKING RULE FOR VAMPIRE’S KISS:

FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
Peter Loew (Nicolas Cage) recites the entirety of the alphabet, to the chagrin of his therapist – Waterfall through the recitation of the alphabet, the goal being to finish your drink by the time he says “That’s ALLL you hafta DO!”
