Deadly Drinks: Zombie Brain Shots

Tired? Spent? Feel like a zombie after a crap day of work?

We feel you. After working yourself to death – sometimes it’s nice to come home and relax with your favorite beverage.

Especially if that drink happens to be made with vodka. And brains.


We stumbled across this recipe for zombie brain shots over at i’m not a monster – the blog of otep shamaya and just couldn’t help but share. A little vodka, a little lime juice, and a little Bailey’s Irish Cream and you have yourself one bloody good shooter.

1 1/4 oz. strawberry vodka such as Stoli
1/8 oz. Rose’s lime juice
3/4 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
Splash of grenadine

Mixing acidic lime juice and Irish cream causes the cream to curdle, creating brain-like strands in the shot. The grenadine creates the blood strands.

Mix the vodka and lime juice and pour into the shot glasses. Then using a straw, submerge the straw into the Bailey’s, seal with your thumbs and then dip into the vodka. Slowly lift your thumb and create Bailey’s brain strands. Continue the process until you build what resembles a brain. Finish with the grenadine for a bloody fresh look.

Follow the link for more in depth instructions – and if you try it, keep in mind we’d love to take some shots too – er… see some shots too.
