Zombie

 

 

Did you come here for the boos?! Despite the spooky name, the Zombie is very much a classic Tiki cocktail hailing from none other than sunny California. Supposedly one of the first people to sample this strong and complex drink claimed it left him feeling like a zombie for days, and the name stuck! It’s an understatement to describe the Zombie as potent; the amount of rum is perhaps unnecessary even. Yet the cocktail comes to life (ironically!) with the tropical burst of fruit from the pineapple and lime, along with sweet tartness from the grenadine.
