Our recipe for the famous Zombie Cocktail !

A refreshing cocktail, nothing like it to escape in the islands of Guadeloupe, gustatively speaking… !


Our bartender at Le Birdy, the Bar of Bwa Chik Hotel & Golf, unveils his recipe for the famous Zombie cocktail.

It is a must-have white and amber rums cocktail !

By the way, this cocktail was born in the 1930s in the restaurants chain Donn the beachComber, in Hollywood…The bartender would then have created this cocktail for one of his loyal customers the day after a watered-down evening ! So, to put him back on the right path, nothing better than a mix of rum and fruits. The client took three in a row, then disappeared for a week. When he returned to the bar, he warned the bartender that the cocktail had made him a « zombie »…which gave its name to this cocktail (whose doses have been reviewed since !)

So don’t wait and take your shaker !

Ingredients :

  • 3cl amber rum
  • 3cl white rum
  • 2cl lime juice
  • 3cl pineapple juice
  • 3cl grapefruit juice
  • 1 dash of grenadine
  • 1 dash of cane sugar syrup


Preparation :

Fill half a shaker with ice.

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker.

Shake it all out.


Filter the ice into a tumbler glass and decorate with a nice slice of pineapple.

An explosion of flavors will delight your taste buds and the Zombie will essentially be an invitation to travel.

So be careful not to end up as the first tester of this cocktail, and drink responsibly !
