Who else is excited for the mid-season finale of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” season 3 (9/8c) besides me? You may recall from previous posts that we get a little excited about Zombie-themed entertainment! So after sitting through a super slow season 2 full of characters irrationally shouting at each other (*coughShane*cough*cough*), I’ve been much more enthralled with the latest plot line of  “The Ricktatorship takes on The Prison.” A lot more action, gore, and major characters getting killed off  (YAY) instead of everyone constantly arguing and waiting for Sophia to magically reappear (boo). Of course there’s new people too, namely the samurai-sword-wielding Michonne, played by Danai Gurira, who makes the feminist in me cheer.

In celebration of this anticipated night of television, my friends and I are going to make Zombies! (the cocktail recipe) If you would also like to partake in these libations, just follow the directions below:


1/2 fl. oz dark rum
1/2 fl. oz gold rum
1/2 fl. oz white rum or Malibu coconut rum
3/4 fl. oz apricot brandy
1/3 fl. oz lime juice
2 fl. oz pineapple juice
1 tsp. sugar syrup
Crushed ice or ice cubes
Twist of lime zest, to serve

Put all the ingredients (except the ice) into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into a glass half-filled with crushed ice or ice cubes and stir well. Decorate glass with a twist of lime zest.

Serves 1
