What is a zombie?

One of the classic tiki drinks, the zombie is thought to have emerged in the 1930s at the Don the Beachcomber tiki bar in Hollywood. It’s a complex blend of three different rums, fruit juices and other ingredients such as anise liqueur, bitters and grenadine, and packs a punch – one or two is more than enough.

What you’ll need.

25ml white rum

25ml dark rum

1 tbsp (we used Two Drifters Overproof Spiced Pineapple Rum) overproof rum

25ml lime juice

1.25ml pernod or other anise liqueur

100ml pineapple juice a dash Angostura bitters

1 tsp grenadine mint sprigs, cocktail cherries and orange or pineapple wedges, to garnish.

How to make it.

STEP 1 Put all the rums, the lime juice, Pernod, pineapple juice and Angostura bitters in a blender with ice and blitz for a few seconds. Or, shake well in a cocktail shaker filled with ice until the outside of the shaker is cold.

STEP 2 Pour the cocktail into a glass filled with ice cubes, then slowly drizzle over the grenadine. Garnish with mint, cocktail cherries and orange or pineapple wedges.
