Its a week before Hallowe’en, but the thought of Zombies is never far from our minds here all year long at Madtini World Headquarters. We spent our Saturday afternoon undercover, as we walked arm in arm with the undead. Here are a few pictures to prove it. We are determined to be protected and not caught without supplies during the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse. We’re stockpiling rum, gin, tequila and vodka, making sure the doors and windows are heavily secured and that we have adequate ammunition very close at hand. Double Tap!
Even though #22 of the Rules of Zombieland clearly states ‘No Drinking’, we have to stay true to the rules of Madtini. Rule #1 at Madtini states ‘have a good time, but know your limits and play within them’. There’s nothing more embarrassing (and potentially fatal) than partying too hard and waking up to a zombie nibbling on your fingertips.
Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice except the 151 dark rum & grenadine. Shake well then strain into a tall cocktail glass. Add the 151 dark rum and grenadine to the top of the drink. Garnish with an orange wedge and two maraschino cherries.
Happy Hallowe’en from Madtini.
It’s Friday afternoon again and while scanning through the pages of the Complete Home Bartender’s Guide: 780 Recipes for the Perfect Drink we chose this drink recipe.

Cheers and have a happy weekend!
