Easy Zombie Cocktail

Craving a tropical drink, but want something different? Then try this delicious Zombie Cocktail recipe. It’s the perfect Tiki drink! Made with mango, orange juice and a variety of rum, this simple drink is perfect for a Luau Party or sipping by the pool.

After creating this popular Tropical Rum Punch recipe, I’m a little obsessed with various rum cocktails. The premise behind Tiki cocktails is that they’re high in booze, but balanced out with fruits and spices so they don’t taste strong. I’m excited that Living Locurto team member Natalie made this for us today! It’s one yummy cocktail recipe, I’ll be making a lot this summer.

What is in a Zombie Cocktail?

The Zombie is a cocktail made of fruit juices, liqueurs, and several kinds of rum. It was invented by Donn Beach at his Hollywood restaurant in 1934. It became popular on the East coast after the 1939 New York World’s Fair. This was a time when Tiki themed bars were the craze, making the Zombie a popular Tiki drink.

How do you make Mango Puree?

One of this Zombie drink’s ingredients is mango puree. You might be wondering where you can find this or how you can make it. You can buy mango puree or syrup at most liquor stores, on Amazon here, or make it yourself with a fresh mango.

For fresh Mango Puree, you’ll need:

  • 1 ripe mango, cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons water

Put the ingredients into a blender and puree. That’s it!

What is Angostura Bitters?

One of the important ingredients in a Tiki drink is Angostura Bitters. Bitters are made from botanicals such as aromatic herbs, bark, roots, and fruit. These ingredients are infused into a flavorless alcohol base to create a potent flavoring.

Rumor has it that the Angostura Bitter’s recipe contains over 40 ingredients, but only a few people know the actual formula.

Angostura Bitters is used in several classic cocktails such as an Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Daiquiri and various Tiki drinks.

How Do You Make a Layered Cocktail?
