Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 10 - 20107,006 views

We all need to eat, we all want to drink. Ofcourse we all prefer to grab a beer and fill us up untill we wake up, never knowing when we fell asleep.

If you have a special occasion to get drunk and wasted, here’s the drink for you: Zombie! There a many recipes for this cocktail, but they have one thing in common: you’ll feel like a Zombie afterwards. The Zombie is a cocktail made of fruit juices, liqueurs, and various rums, so named for its perceived effects upon the drinker. It first appeared in the late 1930s, invented by Donn Beach (formerly Ernest Raymond Beaumont-Gannt) of Hollywood’s Don the Beachcomber restaurant.

The 1939 World’s Fair was it’s debut and it is still perfect to enjoy for a relaxing happy hour, tropical summer drink or a haunting Halloween party cocktail.

The drink is mentioned by the doctor in the 1943 film I Walked With a Zombie as the final example of what the definition of a zombie might entail. Frances Dee’s character responds, “I tried one once, but there wasn’t anything dead about it.”

Here’s what you gotta grab and mix:

•1 1/4 oz lemon juice
•1 oz dark rum
•3/4 oz orange juice
•1/2 oz cherry brandy
•1/2 oz light rum
•1/2 oz high-proof dark rum
•2 dashes grenadine

1.Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
2.Shake well.
3.Strain into a highball glass with crushed ice.

If you really need to feel like a zombie, you gotta drink one!
