The Zombie Cocktail

The Zombie is an excellent choice and Sugar Lounge’s most popular cocktail. Made according to a secret house recipe, it has five rums and absinthe which is flamed in a glass and poured flaming into a passionfruit garnish. The cocktail celebrates the flavour of rum with a hint of absinthe on the finish. Close your eyes, and you can almost feel the warmth and sand in your toes.
