zombie lady

1/2 oz Demerara 151 Proof Rum (Lemon Hart)
1/2 oz Gold or Dark Jamaican Rum (Smith & Cross)
1/2 oz Gold Puerto Rican Rum (Don Q Extra Añejo Oro)
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/4 oz Falernum (Velvet)
1/4 oz Grenadine
1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a rocks or coupe glass, and garnish with 5 drops of Herbstura (equal parts Herbsaint and Angostura Bitters).
Two Tuesdays ago, I pondered what the 1934 Zombie would be like as an egg white Sour. The direction I took was inspired by the 1930s White Lady so I dubbed the experiment the Zombie Lady. I removed the Zombie's Herbsaint and Angostura Bitters from the mix and utilized them as the garnish akin to how many use lemon or orange oil from a twist in the White Lady. Once built, the Zombie Lady lurched at the nose with anise, cinnamon, and clove aromas. Next a creamy lime, grapefruit, and berry sip attacked with a funky rum, cinnamon, and clove swallow. Overall, I was rather pleased with the end result.
