You need to drink this Zombie cocktail at Mission Taco Joint
With three types of rum – light, dark and overproof – plus Falernum (and a two-per-person limit), the Zombie at Mission Taco Joint might make you think it will bowl you over with booziness, but it’s actually quite light and refreshing, with plenty of citrus juice and a splash of grenadine that lends just enough sweetness. A drizzle of cinnamon syrup adds a hint of spice, and a splash of bitters accentuates the full gamut of flavors. Served in a Tiki-themed ceramic cup with a flaming pineapple garnish, this drink evokes beach vacation vibes.
