70s Horror Classics Reimagined

I've been in a 70s horror mood recently. I love the use of Occult and psychology that predominated thrillers and horror movies at that time. It takes a step away from the camp of the 50s and 60s and gives it more of a kick. In honor of some of my favorites, I've created cocktails for you to try.
