Best Zombie Cocktails In Birmingham
As the evenings get darker and Halloween draws near, you will be needing something spooky to sup on and we can think of nothing more perfectly petrifying than the Zombie. This fruity number has remained a firm favourite since it first was created in the 1930s. The rumour is that the Frankenstein behind this cocktail monster, Don Beach created the drink to help a pal get through a business meeting. A few days later the chap returned, claiming he'd be wondering around for the last few days like a complete zombie. Whether this was due to the aforementioned hangover, or the delectable mix of rum, juice and a little absinthe - or more likely a mix of the two - we are in no position to say.
The downstairs party bar at Bitter and Twisted's city centre venue Bodega, may well be the perfect setting for you and your Zombie. With a Mexican 'Day of the Dead' theme, things might get a bit creepy down there. This fun and quirky bar in Birmingham gets a bit more traditional with their Zombie, adding a wee bit of apricot brandy to their rum base of Myer's rum, Havanna Club 3 and Havanna Especial, of course, we're in Mexico! Sort of. Bodega then mixes in some lime and pineapple juices for that extra zing and some yummy almond syrup, all topped off with our favourite green fairy, absinthe. A potent mix that hopefully won't leave you a dead man walking.
