If you’re looking for a nice refreshingly tart drink then this vintage cocktail is the one for you. The Zombie cocktails started in 1934 and have been popular ever since . It’s also know as a skull puncher.  Don’t let that scare you though.. I’m guessing you’d need to down quite a few to let it live up to that name but I can’t speak from experience (well, not that I’d admit anyway).

    I made this tonight for my daughter and I. It was so refreshing and delicious! Nice change to my margarita that I make homemade. I only had one type of rum, still worth making. I topped it with Topo Chico. ( Mexican sparkling water) Thankyou for sharing your recipe.4 stars
