Drinking With Bwog: The Zombie
Written by Bwog Staff
Drinking with Bwog is brought to you by the Columbia Bartending Agency. This week we attempt to pull you out of your midterm graves with a little bit of undead magic. Tonight’s drink was concocted by Elliot Grieco.
Ready your shovels. In the spirit of a spooky season, we wanted to share with you a thematic concoction to help make your time in the West Village (or Butler) a bit more riotous. Considering the week of midterm hell many of us just went through, this week’s drink is not only tasty, but emotionally relatable. We give you the Zombie:
- 1 oz. Light (“Silver”) Rum
- 1 oz. Dark (“Gold”) Rum
- 1/2 oz. Spiced Rum
- 1 oz. Sour Mix
- 1 oz. Pineapple Juice
- 1 oz. Rose’s Lime Juice
- OPTIONAL: *Small* splash of Bacardi 151
The Zombie is a shaken drink. First, fill the shaker with ice, then pour the triplet of rums and juices. Shake well (Thriller-style), serve with ice. For an extra dose of “spiritual” enhancement, add a very small dash of 151 to the top to give the first sip an extra kick. The proper garnish is a cherry and pineapple, but we recommend a gummy worm flag (speared on a toothpick), or some other creepy confection.
As always, drink responsibly. We don’t want your braaaaaaaains to turn to mush.
