Best Halloween Cocktail Ever




It’s not actually a Halloween drink, per se.
It’s really a TIKI drink, but with a villainous name. It’s Don the Beachcombers,
Zombie Punch from 1934.


Zombie Punch

3/4 oz.            Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz.            Don’s Mix*
1/2 oz.            Falernum
1 1/2 oz.         Gold Puerto Rican Rum
1 1/2 oz.         Aged Jamaican Rum
1 oz.                151-proof Lemon Hart Demerara Rum
Dash               Angostura Bitters
6 drops           Pernod or Herbsaint
1 tsp.               Grenadine
(3/4 cup)        Crushed Ice

Put everything in a blender. Blend at high speed for no more than 5 seconds. Pour into a chimney glass. Add ice cubes to fill. Garnish with a mint sprig.

*Don’s Mix was one of the Beachcomber’s secret ingredients. It’s made by combining 2 parts grapefruit juice with 1 part cinnamon syrup.
