When you are confronted with Zombies, you better get your guard up quick!
Whether you're fighting off a real invasion of zombies from your front lawn, playing the Konami published video game Zombie Apocalypse, watching the film 2012: Zombie Apocalypse by Syfy or The Asylum (starring Ving Rhames, of course), or whether you’re enjoying the music of a crossover thrash/metalcore band of the same name, you need some hard liquid refreshments to help you cope, win, succeed, evade, destroy, or otherwise tolerate the Zombies and their wrath.
It is your responsibility to make sure you have what it takes for zombie apocalypse survival!
Here are some great drinks you should add to your zombie survival gear list to help you in your efforts:
The Zombie
The Zombie is a cocktail made of fruit juices, liqueurs, and various rums, so named for its perceived effects upon the drinker, and was developed by Hollywood's Don the Beachcomber restaurant in the 1930s, and was popularized at the 1939 New York World's Fair.
Death in the Afternoon
Then there is Death in the Afternoon... This potent combination of champagne and absinthe was a favorite of Ernest Hemingway. “Papa” would drink 3 to 5 of these, but always slowly, for there can be truth in the name of this cocktail, you would not want to end up a zombie in the middle of the afternoon, or maybe you would!
El Diablo
You could combine tequila, Creme de Cassis and lime juice in a shaker, and then fill it with ice, shake vigorously, and then strain it into a short tumbler filled with ice, and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wheel or wedge... that is what they call El Diablo.
Flaming Zombie
A Flaming Zombie, can be made with these ingredients;
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1/2 oz apple brandy
  • 2 oz light rum
  • 2 oz dark rum
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz grenadine
  • 1 oz 151 Rum
Chill the mixing glasses with ice. Remove the ice and add the juices, brandy, and the light and dark rums. Prepare Hurricane glass by pouring grenadine around inside of rim and letting it bleed down along the glass. Carefully pour the contents of the mixer into glass. Float the 151 rum and grenadine. Light with wooden match. Be careful not to burn your beard, eyebrows, Mickey Mouse ears, or your tiara (all things that are scientifically proven to evade zombies)!
