My pal Toast and her merry minions have been fretting over an official boat drink for their beloved Don Quixote.
We never did concoct an official drink for the Zombie Princess but since spacetime is fluid, just like delicious adult beverages, I'll offer one now for your enjoyment.
The Official Zombie Princess drink: The Zombie Princess (of course)
1 jigger Absinthe
1 jigger Southern Comfort
3 jiggers chilled simple syrup
Juice of ½ lime
Dash of Tabasco
Sugar (for rim)
Slice of lime
Tanna leaves (3 for life, 9 for movement)
Decorative parasol (umbrella)
Straw (preferably a wacky, twisty one)
Sugar the rim of a large absinthe glass (or substitute 12-oz. highball glass), Pour in 1 jigger of Absinthe. Slowly add 3 jiggers of chilled simple syrup, while stirring. Squeeze in the juice of ½ lime. Add 1 jigger of Southern Comfort. Stir. Dash of Tabasco. Garnish with a slice of lime and tanna leaves. [N.B. Tanna leaves are a fictional creation for the movie "The Mummy" (1932). You cannot actually buy them anywhere.] If you substitute mint leaves for tanna leaves, do NOT crush or bruise them; just use them for garnish. No mint flavor allowed. Add parasol (festive paper umbrella) and (zany) straw. Enjoy! But NEVER, under any circumstances, allow salt to come anywhere near a Zombie Princess!
The signature meal of the ZP would hafta be our (in)famous "Sole Chicken." Sole Chicken is referenced and the recipe given near the end of this post.
Our signature appetizer is crab mousse, recipe near the end of this post.
And I'll hafta talk to Bob and get his ideas for a signature drink for Gort.
