How to make ...

TT Green Zombie

We love a Zombie at TT. This is a drink so vague and nebulous in its preparation and recipe that it’s pretty much up to the server what their Zombie contains. The only real defining factors of a Zombie are that it is rum-based, tropical and lethally strong without tasting it at all. Our new green Zombie embraces all of these characteristics admirably.

Method

In a Boston glass or shaker, using a jigger to measure, combine the rum, falernum, lime juice and sugar syrup.

Add cubed ice to the shaker, seal and shake vigorously for 12-15 seconds.

Strain into a hurricane glass.

Fill the glass with cubed ice, and pour the Midori over top.

Hollow out a squeezed lime half and balance atop the drink like a little bowl.

Fill lime half with overproof rum and set alight using a match and sprinkle cinnamon/icing sugar over the flame.

Extinguish and pour the remaining overproof rum into the drink.

Stir and garnish with a cocktail umbrella.

Serve and enjoy!

History

What sets this Zombie apart from others is its relatively sparse use of juice and ‘mixers’ and its vibrant green colour, achieved using Midori, a fragrant Japanese melon liqueur with a distinct verdant hue.

Our straightforward but punchy Zombie combines clean white rum, sweet aromatic Velvet Falernum, fresh lime juice, a little sugar syrup, the essential Midori and of course a healthy splash of overproof rum to provide not only an extra kick to the drink but also its signature theatrics. The high alcohol content of the overproof means it can be set aflame and a sprinkling of cinnamon or icing sugar gives us a mini indoor fireworks display.
