Woohoo Mama! You made it! Labour Day weekend is here and your children have made it through the summer in one piece, and you too presumably. This is cause for celebration. I suggest you grab your bestie for this drink, that I’ve renamed the Mombie.
Why the Mombie? Because a Mombie is way scarier than a Zombie. Like Zombies, Mombies too have one track minds (get through the summer, get through the summer), they shuffle when they walk (this comes from the exhaustion of chasing children around for two months) and they grunt when they talk (this comes from lack of adult conversation). But where Mombies are way scarier than Zombies is the eyes in the back of their head. Those eyes are tired now. They need a break for Pete’s sake, and on Tuesday when thousands of children head back to school, Mombie’s everywhere will rejoice.
Of course, I’m kidding. I love my children, I love my children.
So this is how to make Zombies, er I mean Mombies
2 ounces dark rum
2 ounces white rum
1 ounce golden rum
1 ounce triple sec
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce orange juice
1 ounce pineapple juice
1 ounce guava juice
1 tbsp grenadine
1 tbsp amaretto
1 tsp Pernod
Okay, let’s count that. One, two, three, four, five, six…..six different types of alcohol! Houston, we have ignition. Now mix all these bad boys up with the juice in a cocktail shaker with some crushed ice. Pour into Martini glasses. Raise a glass with your bestie and toast each other that you’ve made through another summer with the kids.
Thanks to the kind people over at Life Made Delicious for the fancy schmancy new martini glasses. They’re perfect for these Mombies
