"The Frankenstein Zombie is a tiki-inspired cocktail straight out of the twisted minds of our very own mad scientists.."

How to make ...

Frankenstien Zombie

The Frankenstein Zombie comes from the twisted minds of our very own mad scientists. Mixing vodka, gin, rum and Midori with lemon juice and sugar gives us a surprisingly delicious and devilishly deceptive tiki drink.

Method

Take your Boston Glass or small tin and, using your jigger to measure, add the vodka, gin, rum, midori and sugar syrup to the shaker.

Using your Mexican elbow and a jigger to measure, squeeze 25ml of lemon juice and add it to the shaker.

Fill your shaker with cubed ice and seal using your Boston tin or lid, before shaking vigorously for 10-15 seconds or until your tin is very cold.

Fill your high-ball or tiki mug with cubed ice and, using your Hawthorne strainer, strain your cocktail into the glass.

Garnish with a lemon wedge.

Serve and enjoy!

History

This drink found its way onto our list after a customer who was particularly fond of this Japanese melon liqueur requested that we work it into a tiki menu, we liked it so much it stuck. Our head bartender and events manager, Jake Rogers had this to say about the Frankenstein Zombie:

“The Frankenstein Zombie is a bit of a break from the norm in terms of tiki cocktails, almost more akin to a Long Island Iced Tea than a traditional Zombie, but with the added east-asian flavour of Midori. And with its strength it’s not one for the faint hearted.”

The Frankenstein Zombie is a big green cocktail guaranteed to inject some fun into any bar hire.

This tiki-inspired cocktail mixes vodka, gin, white rum and Midori, a unique, Japanese, melon flavoured liqueur with a distinctive, bright green colour. Together the strong dry spirits, the sweet fruity liqueur and the tangy fresh lemon juice work to create a drink that tastes far more complex and refined than it looks.

Tiki drinks are all about fun and this family of cocktails tend to be brightly coloured, tropically flavoured and far from shy with their alcohol content. The Frankenstein Zombie, like so many tiki drinks, has a considerable kick, if you’re planning a tiki based menu it might be worth featuring some longer, lower ABV options to sit alongside the heady tiki cocktails. Some great light tiki options include the Buena Vida; a surprisingly sophisticated mix of tequila, grapefruit, pineapple and soda, sure to quench thirsts at a hot summer event, or the Sloppy Joe, which despite its name is a gorgeously refined Martini-style tiki drink featuring rum, white vermouth, triple sec, lime and grenadine, combined carefully to create a cocktail that rivals French-Italian amaro drinks in terms of depth and complexity.

The Frankenstein Zombie is a fun favourite but it certainly packs enough balance and flavour to earn its stripes as a legitimate cocktail too. For those who are particular fans of Midori, there are a few other drinks that feature this unique melon liqueur: The Japanese Slipper, is a sour style drink that combines Midori with triple sec and lemon juice making a tart and fruity low ABV sour.
