Defused variants of the drink
Due to its popularity, countless variants of the zombie now exist. They often contain a much lower percentage of alcohol and are made with pineapple and passion fruit juice. This makes the cocktail much fruitier and sweeter than the original and much less potent.
You can tell a really high percentage zombie by the fact that you can set it on fire.
The right glass for the zombie cocktail
As a tiki cocktail, it should really be served in a fancy tiki cup. Often it is even served in its own cups, which have the shape of a skull. However, since home tiki mugs are a bit pointless, you can just use a large highball glass for him. In it also comes the beautiful orange color of the cocktail.
