The zombie...a cocktail


1 oz. apricot brandy
1 oz. light rum
1 oz. dark or Jamaican rum
1 oz. lime juice
2 dashes grenadine
Orange juice
1 oz. Bacardi 151 rum

Mix light and dark rum and brandy in a cocktail shaker, add lime juice and grenadine. Shake well and strain into a highball glass filled with cracked ice. Fill glass with orange juice but leave enough room to float the 151 on top. Garnish with a cherry and orange slice.

Legend is, Hollywood restaurant owner Donn Beach created the drink to help a hung-over customer get through a meeting. Later, the customer complained that he'd been a zombie his whole trip.

Bonfires, leaves, and walking on the wild side. October Isabelle style.


Have you planned your Halloween costume? I have a confession to make. I don't like wearing costumes. Ask me about the time (in seventh grade) I made a Tootsie Roll costume... Don't laugh! It was traumatic. Even though I did take second place in the costume contest.
