Friday’s Vintage Cocktail: Halloween Edition!

Hello lovelies,

The weekend is here, and I’m so very excited to be sharing with all of you my Friday’s Vintage Cocktail blog post! On Friday’s I share a fabulous true vintage or vintage inspired cocktail with you all to celebrate the weekend being here! As always please be sure to drink responsibly and if any younger readers come across this, be sure to abide by your states drinking laws.


With Halloween weekend being upon us I thought it would be a fabulous opportunity to concoct a spooky cocktail for you all! I was listening to Rockabilly Radio the other day where one of the presenters was playing spookabilly music, horror themed rockabilly music, which was so much fun, so I’ve included a YouTube video with music to help get you in the mood for a spooky cocktail.


A lot of people are quite surprised when they find out I’m a big horror fan, I watch a few horror films and short films most week’s! Zombies are one of my favourite creepy creatures, so it was only fitting that this week I feature the iconic Zombie Cocktail!

The Zombie Cocktail


This drink is said to be created by Donn Beach to help hungover customers push through business meetings that they had, and would often complain that the drinks had turned them into zombies. The original cocktail 1934 recipe was guarded highly, and staff often used codes to hide ingredients. During this time customers were also limited to only two drinks per patron as the alcohol content is so high.


  • 1/2 a jigger of white rum.
  • 1 jigger of gold rum.
  • 1 jigger of dark run.
  • 1 jigger of fresh lime juice.
  • 1 jigger of pineapple juice.
  • 1 jigger of orange juice.
  • 1 teaspoon of fine sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon of grenadine.
  • A dash of Angostura Bitters.
  • Ice cubes.
  • Mint leaves, lime slice, and anything else you’d like to garnish.



  1. Place all ingredients in a blender, not including your garnishes. Blend for no more than 5 seconds.
  2. Serve in a glamorous cocktail glass, the recommend glass is a collins glass.
  3. Garnish with mint leaves, lime slice or anything else you’d like.
  4. Enjoy as we welcome in the halloween weekend!

My thoughts: 

This cocktail is truly delicious though it is a little on the potent side! It’s fruity with a kick of rum that is perfect for a tiki party! If you were making this for a party you could definitely add in some ghoulish garnishes like my eyeball! If you’re concerned this drink may be a little strong for you, you can definitely just have one or two jiggers as opposed to three!


I hope you all have a ghoulish Halloween weekend! If you’re yet to find something to do I’ll be performing at Vicious Von Vixen’s Late Night Cabaret tomorrow night at The Ellington Jazz Club!

More vintage fun coming soon!

Much love,
