Sinister Saturdays: Half-Zombie Cocktail

Sinister Saturdays have kinda become a hodge podge of recipes for Halloween cocktails and food, random thoughts, and angry mini-meltdowns that I mark ‘private’ the next day to spare myself any humiliation over my privileged tantrums. Lucky for you, tonight is a recipe in celebration of our theme: Zombie Spring.

I call it the Half-Zombie, cuz it’s missing like half the ingredients of a Zombie cocktail.

Ingredients:
2-3 oz dark rum
2 oz pineapple juice
1 oz cranberry juice
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 oz pomegrante grenadine
Dash of ginger ale

Optional Garnish: Mint, fresh fruit slices, pineapple, strawberry, lime, etc.

If there was anything truly sinister about this Saturday, it’s that I’m too damn lazy to go to the store to buy ingredients to make a decent Zombie. I apparently haven’t recovered from 2020.

I’ll admit this ended up on the sweet side, but sinister and sweet are what us Halloween lovers live for! Cheers!

Happy Caturday – March

March is the month dedicated to legendary creatures, from leprechauns to fairies, the Dullahan to selkies, these legends, myths, and stories touch upon almost every aspect of our lives, as we draw strength, belief, love, and courage from these mystical beings.

Happy Caturday – February

Okay, well our theme this February is love and death, but this wallpaper taken from wallpaperup.com is too cute to pass up for Caturday.

I cannot find artist information for this one. I absolutely believe in giving credit to these talented human beings, so if you know who created this wallpaper, please send me an email at Halloweenkristy@gmail.com or comment below with a link.

Happy Caturday – November

While searching for something to represent our theme this month of A Vampire’s Fall, I came across this dark and atmospheric artwork from Cutwir3 aka Ghostly Theater. This is a whole mood.

Happy Caturday – October

Happy Halloween! This month we celebrate Halloween icons and the Black Cat is as synonymous with the holiday as the jack-o-lantern. Dark as night, cool, mysterious, irreverent guardians, it’s no wonder how they became so feared, blameful of calamity, and deemed witches’ familiars, cats simply appear to have their own agenda.

Happy Caturday – September

At long last, our Halloween dreams are about to become reality. Halloween Dreams, that’s our theme this beautiful September, the first of the ‘Ber months. Stay tuned, as I will soon reveal the Halloween celebration plans, which includes the 3rd Annual Halloween Haiku Contest. Sharpen those pencils, I have really nice prizes to give away this year.

I wish everyone a joyous, memorable, fun-filled Halloween season!🎃🎃🎃

Happy Caturday – July

This month’s theme is campfire creatures.

How much do you really know about the creatures lurking from deep in the forests?

Remember to always practice good camp and fire safety and the ghosts of careless campers won’t lead the monsters straight to you.
