Named "The Zombie" because this high alcohol content cocktail is said to be able to bring the dead back to life. That's powerful. This drink includes 1/2oz Bacardi 151 rum, 1oz pineapple juice, 1oz orange juice, 1/2oz apricot brandy, 1 tsp sugar, 2oz light rum, 1oz dark rum, 1oz lime juice. To make this drink, all the ingredients are blended, while the rum 'floats' on top.
The Cuba Libre
Believed to have been invented in the 1900s, you can understand why prohibition was a thing if this is what they were drinking. It contains 2.5oz of rum topped with a special lime cola made especially for the restaurant by Brooklyn Soda Works and a wedge of pineapple soaked in moonshine.
The Kings Sculptor
While this drink may have a regal-sounding name, it will make a king act like a jester. This drink has Louis Royer "Force 53″ Cognac, bosc pear, chocolate bitters, fresh ginger juice, fresh lemon juice, and King's ginger liqueur. A drink surely fit for a king.
The Black Russian
Anything Russian usually means business, and this cocktail is no exception. The drink only requires coffee-flavored liqueur and vodka (try adding vanilla-flavored vodka for a different kick).
Death In The Afternoon
This drink doesn't joke around. It calls for a pretty solid amount of absinthe with a champagne floater. The combination of anise-flavored liqueur and the bubbles will make you forget you're drinking highly concentrated alcohol, which is never good.
This appley cocktail will knock you off your chair if you're not careful, so be sure to examine the contents before taking it to the face. Rittenhouse 100, Laird's Bonded, also 100 proof, finish with 110-proof green Chartreuse and BAM! You're drunk.
Sure, this drink is named innocently enough, I'm sure your Aunt Roberta would never harm a soul, but this drink packs quite a punch. 1oz absinthe, 1.5oz vodka, 1/2oz 151 rum, 1oz brandy, 3/4oz gin, 1/2oz blackberry liqueur. That's right, nothing but alcoholic beverages.
The Hurl Hurl
Okay, if you order this drink after reading its name, you are a brave soul, aren't you? The cocktail contains 1 part of Amaretto, cranberry juice, crème de Banane, Malibu rum, melon liqueur, peach schnapps, raspberry liqueur, Southern Comfort, and triple sec.
While technically not a "drink," this vaporized cocktail will leave you dizzy. Inventor Julie Palmer created the glass apparatus – from which spirits are inhaled after being heated to 140°F – claiming that taking alcohol directly into the bloodstream has the advantage of "almost no calories, no carbs, no impurities, and immediate effects."
