In light of the impending Zombie Apocalypse we’ve found yet another platform to celebrate the way pop culture embraces the strange, the creepy and the downright terrifying events in the news lately. The Red Zombie, courtesy of Drink of the Week, has quite a list of curious ingredients, including eyeballs (no bath salts though).
1 ½ oz. Skyy vodka
3 oz. tomato juice
½ tsp. finely-grated horseradish
1 tsp. barbecue sauce
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
3 dashes Tabasco sauce
½ tsp. finely-chopped chipotle en adobo
Pinch of kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
Generous squeeze of lemon juic
Pinch of celery seeds
1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
2. Shake vigorously and strain into martini glass.
3. Garnish with green eyeballs*
*Cut the end of a stalk of celery so it measures 5–6 inches long and split the stick in half lengthwise. Slide the green olives into two lychee fruits to make eye balls and push the thin celery stick through both as garnish.
