The holidays can be stressful so what better way to relax and destroy a few brain cells than with a new drink of mine called “The Christmas Zombie”. It’s a updated and somewhat stripped down version of the classic “Zombie” drink, but after all the money you’ve spent this month do you really need to waste anymore on frivolous things like grenadine, apricot brandy and Angostura bitters. Also, garnishes like cherries and oranges have been left out; my version of the “Zombie” is basically just booze and juice. Quick and easy to make so you can get your buzz on by the time Uncle Eddie arrives in “Christmas Vacation”.
Here’s what you need:
1 Bottle of White Rum – I went with Cruzan from St. Croix it’s one of the best rums for mixing.
1 Bottle of Dark Rum – To pick things up a notch go with Gosling’s from Bermuda, but be careful kiddies at 151 proof this shit is flammable, so just imagine what it’s doing to your body.
1 Bottle of Pineapple Juice
1 Bottle of Orange Juice
2 oz. white rum
1 oz dark rum
2 oz orange juice
2 oz pineapple juice
Shake and strain into a holiday glass with ice.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
