Zombie Cocktail Recipe

Zombie Cocktail Recipe

[Illustration: Helen Jane Hearn]

Zombies are called zombies because they are seriously alcohol laden.

According to the original Zombie recipe, there are the equivalent of seven and a half ounces of alcohol in a just one Zombie. This would compare to drinking three and a half cocktails made with a healthy 2 ounces of booze for each drink.

I recommend you make the full amount and then divvy up between children's medicine syringes (available in drugstores) and allow guests to shoot themselves with the "antidote."


  • 1 part pineapple juice
  • 1 part orange juice
  • 1 part white rum
  • 1 part apricot brandy
  • 1 part dark rum
  • 1/2 part 151 rum


  1. 1.

    Mix the pineapple juice, orange juice, white rum, dark rum, 151 rum, and apricot brandy in a shaker with ice. Shake well.

  2. 2.

    Alternatively, you can add the 151 rum to the top of the drink and light afire.
