Flaming Zombie (seasonal touch)
This is a must taste for all fun time girls, watching the bartending mix it is half of the fun. Light rum, dark rum and apricot brandy are blended with pineapple, lime, orange and grenadine.

It’s perfect for the ladies with a sweet tooth and a party girl attitude. There are so many variants, the flavours deviate through all kinds of fruit juices, so some even drink it as a frozen slush, order one up if you and the girls are heating things up on your hen party weekend.
A fun party shot. Even though it tastes rich and creamy, the real fun of this shooter is not in its taste but how it is drunk. Because of its layer, it has to be shot, and now half-hearted throw backs either, the secret it in the mix.
