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?

What makes this such a stunning tropical drink is the layers. For this Zombie cocktail, start by filling your glass with ice and pouring the bright red grenadine first. Then mix the rest of the drink ingredients together in a cocktail shaker and pour over the grenadine.

I really like buying this tea because, not only do they use all-natural ingredients, but Milo’s Tea Company is a family, women-owned business.

Mermaid Rum Punch - an ocean blue tropical drink recipe with lemonade, coconut, white rum, banana that’s absolute magic!

Mermaid Rum Punch Recipe

When you’re wishing you could feel the ocean’s breeze on a hot summer day, this Mermaid Rum Punch is just what you’ll want to make! Whether you are lounging by the pool or headed to the beach, sipping on a cool frozen drink is perfect in summer. I’m excited that Natalie made such a fun cocktail for us today!

We’ve made a lot of rum drinks for you in the past, but this fun ocean blue rum punch might be one of the prettiest for sure! It’s not often that you can say you’re drinking mermaid punch right? This makes me wish I was back in beautiful Turks & Caicos for sure!

I would love to make a few pitchers of these mermaid drinks for a party or girl’s day out. If you like piña coladas, then you’ll love this new frozen drink. I have a few friends with summer birthdays and will definitely be making them!

w

Easy Ocean Blue Drink

To go along with it’s name, we definitely wanted this mermaid drink to look like a blue tropical ocean. Since this is mostly made of frozen lemonade, the blue look comes by adding Blue Curacao liqueur. Blue Curacao is made of citrus which gives it more of an orange lemon flavor. If you prefer your drink to taste more like a traditional piña colada, omit the Blue Curacao. You could also add a tablespoon of blueberry puree on the top for a similar blue ocean effect.

Mermaid Rum Punch Party Tips:

  • To add more flavor with less ice, which can water down the drink, freeze the banana and pineapple juice ahead of time.
  • Want the blue effect, but don’t have Blue Curacao? You can aways add blueberry puree. Or mix a few drops of blue food coloring into your blender when mixing.
  • Serve with blue drinking straws and and nautical shell cocktail napkins.
  • Love the seashell coasters in the photos? You can click here to find them on Amazon.
  • I love glass cups so you can see the blue swirled drink, but these Mermaid Squad cups are super cute and perfect for when you’re traveling or at the pool.

Best Ice

This rum punch recipe calls for a lot of ingredients, but believe me, it’s worth it! I recommend using cubed ice vs crushed ice, so your drink isn’t too watered down. I used my crushed ice in my photos and realize now that was a mistake as it melted too quickly.

 

Here’s what you’ll need to make this fun Tropical Rum Punch:

  • mango cranberry juice (If you can’t find Mango Cranberry Juice, use regular Cranberry Juice and add fresh chopped mangos.)
  • white strawberry cranberry juice
  • orange juice
  • simple syrup
  • peach schnapps
  • coconut rum
  • oranges
  • pineapples
  • limes
  • strawberries

The Best Green Margarita Recipe for St. Patrick’s Day!

When you think about St. Patrick’s Day, you might not think Green Margaritas. Most people throw a party by serving Irish cocktails, green beer or mint drinks. If you are from Texas like me, a delicious margarita is a must-have. That’s why I came up with a new recipe for a Green Margarita instead of your usual St. Patrick’s Day cocktail.

My husband is half Irish, so we have to have some green fun around our house each year! I usually make kid-friendly St. Patrick’s Day drinks, but this year, wanted to make something for the adults. We aren’t big beer drinkers, but as Texan’s we’re always up for a good margarita!

So this year, I made this easy green drink recipe for the Oriental Trading blog. With only 4 ingredients, it’s an easy drink to whip up for a party or just a few friends.

I love the festive Irish themed napkins and cute paper straws I found at Oriental Trading. Adding a few cute party supplies like this makes a St. Patrick’s Day party even more fun! I’m always impressed with all of the fun party supplies and usually end up spending hours shopping on their website! If you’re hosting friends this St. Patrick’s Day, make sure you visit Oriental Trading for festive supplies.

The Best Green Margarita for St. Patrick's Day!

Count yourself a lucky leprechaun if you make this Green Margarita. While decked in Irish colors, this recipe is not your usual St. Patty’s day cocktail and sure to be a fan favorite!
