The Naught Zombie Cocktail
The Zombie cocktail is a thrilling and exotic libation that has been a staple of tiki culture since its creation in the mid-20th century. This bewitching concoction is renowned for its vibrant colors and potent mix of rum, fruit juices, and various exotic liqueurs.
Originating from the legendary Donn Beachcomber’s tiki bar in Hollywood, the Zombie is as mysterious as it is delightful. Its complex flavor profile, often featuring dark and light rum, apricot brandy, lime juice, and a medley of tropical fruit syrups, creates a harmonious blend of sweet and tart notes that can lull you into a state of tropical bliss.
This cocktail’s name may evoke images of the undead, but sipping on a well-crafted Zombie will transport you to a sunny beach, far removed from the horrors of the zombie apocalypse.
