The Walking Dead, Alcohol, Halloween, Cocktail, Zombie

It’s Halloween! I hope you’re doing something suitably spooky. But before you do, there’s just enough time to have one more Halloween cocktail. We’ve all heard of the Zombie, an alcoholic nuclear bomb that is destined to leave you one of the undead. Well, the lovely folks over at the Intoxicologist have gone one better and created The Walking Dead, a twist on the Zombie that adds more juice in to make sure you stay standing until the end of the night.

  • 30ml silver rum
  • 25ml apricot brandy

How to make it:

Shake all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker with ice, then strain in to your glass and garnish. This is a sweet and spicy cocktail that’s ideal for Halloween. The extra juice makes it that much more drinkable, and the spice makes it a delicious warming cocktail for autumn. The orange juice and pineapple juice reminds me a little bit of a mai tai or the like, but the deeper flavoured rum makes it less tropical, ideal for my favourite holiday of the year. Happy Halloween!
