Cocktail Hour in the [Zombie] Apocalypse

So I thought this sounded pretty tasty.

How to make the ultimate Zombie cocktail

The article is pretty good, but for those too lazy, here’s the actual recipe:

The Zombie

  • 1/2 ounce white rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces golden rum (Appleton is one of the most reliable brands to use here, bringing a nice balance of sweet and spice without being overbearing)
  • 1 ounce dark rum (The Lash adds a great slug of ginger and molasses to the mix, balancing the tang of the citrus)
  • 1/2 ounce 151-proof rum (Bacardi 151 is generally the go-to bottle here, but any over-proof rum will do since the heat of the alcohol tends to drown out any nuance)
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon papaya juice
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar

Stir all of the ingredients together, except the over-proof rum, and pour into a tall glass filled most of the way with ice. Then take a spoon and submerge it just to the brim and slowly pour the 151 into the bowl of the spoon to float the rum on top. Then simply light that beast for dramatic effect, or self-defense, as needed. After a couple of these, the end of the world as we know it won’t seem nearly as bad.

And here’s a funny quotation from the article:

But maybe the Zombie hits a little too close to home. Perhaps drinking a zombie brings back unpleasant memories of dismembered family members, pets and neighbors. Because hope, along with a trusty shotgun, military training and plenty of canned food, is your best ally in an epidemic of the ambulatory undead, so it can’t hurt to make your cocktail of choice one so strong it’s reputed to bring the dead back to the land of the living – the Corpse Reviver.

Incidentally, the recipe for the Coprse Reviver is also in the article linked above, but if you want it, you’ll have to go get it.

Have a happy zombie apocalypse, and remember don’t drink and drive over zombies… wait… nevermind.
