Trick or Treat! Give Me Something Good to Drink
Take Halloween up a notch with the Bacardi Zombie Cocktail.
It’s that time of year again—Halloween—and there’s an unsettling chill in the air that has nothing to do with the weather. Whether you’re having friends over to celebrate or doling out candy to the neighbourhood ghosts and goblins, it’s time to get ready for fright night.
Costume? Check. Pumpkins carved? Check. Eerie décor replete with bats and spiders? Check. Appies that could stand in as props for a horror movie? Check. Spooky playlist? Check. Now for a signature cocktail that’s sure to send chills down your guests’ spines, whether they’re angels, vampires…or zombies (AKA extras from The Walking Dead). Take the festivities to the next level with a cocktail with a theme-fitting moniker that’s as easy to craft as it is refreshing to drink: the Bacardi Zombie.
Here’s what you need and what to do:
Bacardi Zombie Cocktail
• 2 parts Bacardi Superior
• 1.75 parts Bacardi Black
• 1 part triple sec
• 2 parts orange juice
• 1 part lime juice
• 1 part simple syrup
• .25 parts grenadine
Method: Pour all ingredients into a shaker full of ice and give it a go. Then strain and pour into a highball glass filled with ice. Give it a stir with a bar spoon and garnish with a cherry and orange slice.
Now go do the monster mash!
