One drink that definitely gets the night going is the Zombie cocktail. Owner and chef, Paul Yellin makes it very clear on the menu, ‘One per Person’ because this cocktail is a boozy doozy. If you want to get your night kicking, start off with one of these and impress your friends with a flaming lime and a seriously potent drink. Then maybe go easy on everything else afterwards.
