This potent cocktail typically contains a mix of different rums, with the addition of tart citrus juice, sweet grenadine, and spices like falernum and aniseed liqueur. The main players in this cocktail are the gold, Jamaican, and white rums, creating a complex and flavorful base. The lime juice adds a refreshing tang, while the grenadine provides a hint of sweetness. The addition of bitters and aniseed liqueur add depth and spice to this tropical libation. Served in a tall glass with ice, the Zombie is a perfect balance of sweet, sour, and boozy, making it a favorite among cocktail lovers.
