This weeks drink of the week comes straight from the grave, into your glass. The Zombie was created in the 30’s by Donn Beach, supposedly the recipe was supposed to help a hung-over customer get through a business meeting. The customer, on his return, complained that the drink had turned him into a zombie for his entire trip, thus the cocktail was named. The secret to this drink is the fruity flavor, which works to cover the exceptionally high alcohol content. In fact this drink is so potent that Donn’s restaurants limit each customer to only two per visit. The drink was popularized at the 1939 New York World’s Fair and quickly became a staple in pop culture, being mentioned in Gilligan’s Island, M.A.S.H, and countless other movies and television shows. The Zombie is perfect for a day at the beach, a night watching scary movies, or when you and your friends dress up as zombies and try to scare people. Regardless of how you enjoy it this drink will have you shambling like a corpse in no time!
Be careful when you and your friends try this recipe, you wouldn’t want anyone turning into a zombie. When you mix this drink up make sure to share pictures of your night with us at #ExoticNinja (21+ Please)
