The Zombie Root Carousel Cocktail

October 23, 2011


The Zombie Root Carousel is a marvelous drink that makes you spin in a circle.  How?  What? Like a carousel?  Or like a zombie?

Look out!  There's one behind you now! 


I'm still not sure.

Take some home cured cherries, mash them into a pulp in a cocktail shaker

(Home cured cherries- Pit out 2 pints of cherries, put them in some sterilized Ball Jars, top with brandy, let sit for about 2 weeks in the fridge, they're better than ANYTHING you can buy)

Add one shot of ROOT- USDA Certified Organic Root Tea

Add two shots of Tuthilltown Manhattan Rye Whiskey

Add a few splashes of Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters

Scrape a bit of fresh ginger root into the cocktail shaker

Add some ice, shake and strain into a tall cocktail glass

Finish with a few splashes of Q-Ginger Ale

Garnish with a pickled rhubarb spear and a bit of lime to ward off scurvy.. Lime-juice also wards off Zombies...
