Thirsty Thursday: Get Down with a Zombie Gut Punch

Zombie Gut Punch

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. Last week we stirred up a boozy Halloween-inspired Zombie Cocktailthis week we’re back with something even more bloody good.

As far as Alie and Georgia are concerned, deciding what to drink for Halloween is just as important as choosing a costume. But as with anything else that pertains to the most sinister of holidays, sipping on any old cocktail simply won’t due. Cue the Zombie Gut Punch.

With blood orange juice, cherry soda and grenadine, their spiked punch is not only red enough to lure an entire city’s worth of blood-sucking zombies, but boozy enough to send them all stumbling home. So stir some up tonight, tomorrow, all weekend long or Sunday night while watching The Walking Dead.  Bottoms up, folks.

Zombie Gut Punch
8 servings

10 ounces vodka
5 ounces triple sec
2 ounces bitters
1 cup fresh squeezed blood orange juice
2 cups black cherry soda
Grenadine, for rim

In a large punch bowl filled with ice, pour vodka, triple sec, bitters, blood orange juice and black cherry soda. Laugh as though you are an evil zombie and stir. Rim each glass with grenadine before filling with punch mixture, and serve. Stagger around menacingly, and threaten to eat strangers’ brains.
