4 Walking Dead Cocktails To Try

Did you see The Walking Dead premiere? Man, all the tension, the blood, and the violence! Makes me want to wield a Katana sword in one hand and a cocktail in the other.

Shuffle along with the walking dead, or what we like to call folks Sunday morning, to try these appealing and deadly drinks.

Just be careful not to slice the top off your martini glass. Spilling is such a tragedy.

Naturally we’re starting with Oyamel’s Zombie, a potent blend of Azul, Sailor Jerry, apricot brandy, Falernum, Xtabentún, honey cinnamon syrup, pineapple, papaya and lime juices, coconut milk and angostura bitters, garnished with grilled pineapple.

Because it’s not easy killing the undead. (The secret is in the pineapple.) 401 7th Street NW, Washington, DC. 202.628.1005

It’s pumpkin season, and Bluecoat Gin, Chairman’s spice rum, pumpkin and pineapple juices, butter and cardamon make up Hank’s Oyster Bar’s Dead Man Walking. Tastes like Thanksgiving! 633 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Washington, DC. 202.733.1971

Masa 14’s Zombitini (pictured) mixes RumChata, Stoli Vanilla, cream and cinnamon for a light, milky, almost dessert-y concoction with a graham cracker rim. It’s nice after a big meal or when the world ends. 1825 14th Street NW, Washington, DC. 202.328.1414

Crisp and bright, Legal Sea Foods says the Deadrise with fresh cucumber, lime, grapefruit bitters and Rain Organic Vodka. It’s practically a salad. Various locations.
