I don't know about you, but Halloween is my favourite holiday of the entire year. In this instalment of Chappy Hour, I look to the collection I Found It At the Movies, and specifically the chapter devoted to Monster Movies, for inspiration.

Have you ever considered how Ondaatje would capture King Kong (on paper, of course)? Or wondered what werewolves would do for Margaret Atwood? Sink your teeth into these cinematic odes whilst sipping this sweet, sanguine soda.

What You Need: 1 ounce black cherry vodka 1/2 ounce grenadine Cola Maraschino cherries for garnish

How to Make it: Coat the bottom of a highball glass with grenadine. Add ice and vodka. Fill with cola. Garnish with cherries. [ source]
