If one were looking to craft a boozy party punch, who better to ask than the team at Death & Co, one of the nation’s most renowned cocktail dens, and one that also happens to have a seasonally perfect moniker? We contacted their team via Ouija Board (okay, email) for spooky drink recommendations — one boozy, one alcohol-free, both still very spirited.

Zombie Punch

As the D&C team tells us, the recipe below is for a single drink but it can easily be batched — making it for a group is as simple as figuring out how many people you’re inviting and then using that number as a multiplier for the ingredients. Speaking of numbers, this punch is an ideal showcase for the idea that rum is one of the few spirits you can double — or, in this case, triple — up in a drink. Three rums?!? Gurrrl…be careful out there. 

Zombie Punch

Servings: 1

Copy Ingredients

  • 1 oz. Plantation OFTD
  • 1 oz. Cana Brava
  • 1 oz. Smith and Cross
  • 1 oz. Donn’s Mix
  • .75 oz. lime juice
  • .5 oz. Falernum
  • .25 oz. Grenadine
  • 2 dash absinthe
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters

Copy Directions

    1. Build in a punch bowl/the biggest bowl you can muster, then stir to combine.

    2. Add a single, giant cube of ice. Smaller cubes will melt quicker, diluting the punch. Try freezing a full plastic water bottle, then cutting it apart, or better yet, fill a rubber glove with water and freeze that, then remove to reveal a frozen, severed hand!

    3. Wanna go all out? Drain a jar of canned lychee fruit, pop a blueberry in each one (eyeballs!), and then let them float around to be scooped up as a garnish.

Want to make some more delicious cocktails at home? Of course you do! And thus you should consider picking up Death & Co’s third recipe book, Death & Co: Welcome Home.
