Today we visit two monsters. The first is the bane of every Chinese restaurant. A beast of liquor and a powerhouse of hidden flavors, perfect for knocking you on your butt and doing little else. This is, of course, the Zombie.
A cornucopia of rums and juices, most complimentary pairings are covered by the sweet and sour, making the effect insidious and arresting.
1 oz Light Rum
1 oz Dark Rum
1/2 oz Triple Sec
Dash of Grenadine
2 oz Orange Juice
2 oz Sour Mix
Shake, then top with 1/2 oz of 151 Rum
+ As expected, this is smooth and sweet.
+ And it will knock you right on your butt.
+ Fruity flavors blend well with the two rums.
+ ...but something is missing.
I propose another approach. Something to augment and deepen those fruity flavors. The effect is just as powerful, and way more yummy.
THE SKELETON GUARD
1 oz Black Rum
1 oz White Rum
1/2 oz Triple Sec
Splash of Simple Syrup
4 dashes of Angostura Bitters
2 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
1 oz Jaegermeister
1 oz Apple Mango juice
+ So smooth and sweet.
+ ...which is dangerous, because I want to guzzle it down.
+ This will mess you up for a long while.
+ Simple over grenadine works really well.
+ The bitters provide just enough difference to keep us from spilling over into too much sweet.
...This drink will mess you up. I mean it. One and done. Take a swig, drink it down, then snuggle up with your favorite pet and bad anime and enjoy for the next 3-5 hours. Woof.
Imbibe responsibly. And be careful about what necromancy brings you back from the dead.
