Zombie Cocktail

This cocktail blog is about the famous Zombie cocktail. One of the most popular tiki drinks and here you can find some good informations about this and also you can find the zombie cocktail recipe.


Seeing as we have just come through the spooky season of Halloween, if you are still in the mood for a belated Halloween party, this is the drink for you!

The Zombie (a fitting name seeing as it is normally served in a skull or tiki mug with distorted faces printed over it) is one of those drinks that when you are in a bar or club, you will spot someone else having and instantly have to try one as well. With its impressive volume and glamour, its normally topped off with some lit absinthe creating a deep orange glow as it is carried through the dark tables of nightclubs and bars.

However, this is a drink that you must be careful with; one too many of these and you really will be feeling like a Zombie the next morning.

With Spin and Shake, we use the following method to make our zombie drink the best they can be!

Zombie Cocktail Ingredients:

  • Angostura bitters (4 dashes)
  • Absinthe (2 dashes)
  • Overproof rum (10 ml)
  • Dark rum (20 ml)
  • Light rum (20 ml)
  • Grenadine (10 ml)
  • Cinnamon syrup (20 ml)
  • Fresh lime juice (20 ml)
  • Grapefruit juice (20 ml)

Put that all into a shaking tin and give it a good shake up and down. Once all the zombie cocktail ingredients are incorporated, pour it into a tiki mug of your choice (perhaps a skull if you are serving for friends or family) and then top it with crushed ice and half a passion fruit and a mint sprig. At the end of the day, you can make the drink how ever you want it.
