Friday Fright Nightcaps – Zombtini

Who doesn’t love a good zombie story?  Today, we celebrate the return of Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock, a group of survivors struggling to stay alive in zombie ravaged America, in the horror-comedy Zombieland: Double Tap.

Let’s be honest, most Americans feel like total zombies at the end of long work week. We could use a good pick-me-up to bring back some color to our cheeks. The folks over at Totally the Bomb know what it takes to blow us away with a great new take on the classic martini. May I present, the Zombtini

Friday Fright Nightcaps – The Walking Dead Cocktail

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, The Walking Dead returned this past week for its tenth season. The Walking Dead comics, once considered too complicated for mainstream television, now inspire pop culture in ways, we haven’t seen since the Romero’s horror hit masterpiece, Night of the Living Dead. 

Last season divided fans, but with a new spin-off show in the works, in addition to the already popular, Fear the Walking Dead, there’s no denying that we like zombie TV. So, grab your cocktail shaker and let’s celebrate with Kat Balog’s crazy take on an old classic cocktail, The Walking Dead Cocktail.

Friday Fright Nightcaps – The Witch’s Heart

Happy Friday! Happy International Women’s Day!

Witches are some of the most persecuted women on the planet. This is as true today as it was in the 16th century. Most women who were executed weren’t even witches. They were just women who spoke out against corruption, injustice and religious and political persecution or fought back against sexual predators. In honor of these brave souls who gave their lives to help shape the future for all womenkind, I share with you, a recipe from the kitchen of The Flavor Blender called, The Witch’s Heart.
