Thirsty Thursday: Zombie Cocktail
It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.
Halloween is one week away, which means it’s time to pick out a pumpkin, finalize the details of your costume and, of course, host a well-themed, spooky soiree.
Add some wickedness to your Halloween festivities with this post-apocalyptic Zombie Cocktail, a powerful brew of apricot brandy, three kinds of rum and orange juice. Be warned, the festive jack-o-lantern hue may seem innocent enough, but this punch is bound to wake up the undead.
Boo-ttoms up, folks.
- 1 oz. apricot brandy
- 1 oz. light rum
- 1 oz. dark or Jamaican rum
- 1 oz. lime juice
- 2 dashes grenadine
- Orange juice
- 1 oz. Bacardi 151 rum
Mix light and dark rum and brandy in a cocktail shaker, add lime juice and grenadine. Shake well and strain into a higball glass filled with cracked ice. Fill glass with orange juice but leave enough room to float the 151 on top. Garnish with a cherry and orange slice.
