Cocktail Recipe Du Jour

With the creepy craze still in full effect, I thought I'd share with you the drink called The Zombie!

The Zombie was not invented as a link to any horror genre, but rather as early as the 1930's by Hollywood restaurateur Don the Beachcomber as a hangover cure.  Once the tiki craze hit in the 60's, the drink really took off, with it's tropical undertones of rum and pineapple juice. 

In a collins glass, pour:
1 oz. Dark Rum, 1 oz. Light Rum, 1 oz. Creme de Almond.
Add 1/2 oz. Triple Sec, 1 oz. Sweet & Sour, 1 oz. Pineapple Juice (some recipes also add papaya juice, passion fruit nectar, apricot juice, or other fruit juices.
Float 151 as a lid (by pouring it into a spoon and gently dipping it under the surface of the drink).
If you're feeling saucy, take a match to this cocktail: it'll light up nicely!
Garnish with cherry, pineapple, mint, or a tropical kabob like lemon or orange, pineapple, and cherries.
Enjoy...but don't drink too many, or you'll become the "Walking Dead"!
