Cocktail Hour With Lisa Fox


October is my favorite month and Halloween is my favorite holiday. I thought it would be appropriate to share the recipe for The Zombie for this edition of Cocktail Hour because zombies, like Halloween and October, are awesome. The drink has a lot of ingredients, but it is easy to make.

The Zombie


When I would build this drink in a glass, the amounts pretty much equaled a splash of everything, but if you’re making it party style (which you should) as a punch use a full bottle of each ingredient.

  • Light Rum
  • Bacardi 151
  • Dark Rum
  • Brandy (Preferably Apricot, but regular brandy works too)
  • Triple Sec
  • Pineapple Juice
  • Orange Juice
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Grenadine (actually only use about 1/2 bottle of this one for punch, a small splash for a drink)

Mix it all up. Serve. Drink!

In reality, she can generally be found at her desk with a cup of coffee close at hand. Or maybe a martini. It really depends on the day.
