The Zombie Cookbook

Today I’m part of The Zombie Cookbook virtual blog…tour. Let me ‘splain.

The Zombie Cookbook is an anthology of stories, poetry, recipes and art with a similar theme: cooking zombies or cooking with zombies. As half of Damnation Books, the publisher of TZC, this anthology was my pet project. It’s been the most fun project I’ve ever done. Naturally I’m proud and embarrassed at the same time. LOL! Embarrassing? Yeah. You try explaining to your mother and your neighbors why you’re excited about a bunch of fictional undead.

As I mentioned, there are recipes inside this anthology. I don’t know that anyone would actually want to consume the dishes. But they’re definitely useful for the zombie in your life. The last story of the anthology contains a zombie drink recipe. Well, in keeping with the theme, I figured I’d give the living among us a couple of drink recipes that you can consume. Here they are:

The Brain
1 1/2 oz peach schnapps
1 1/2 oz Bailey's® Irish cream
1 dash grenadine syrup

Pour peach schnapps into a highball glass. Add Irish cream to the center. It will look more like a brain if you use a pour spout to add the Irish Cream because you can move it around to make brain matter squiggles as you pour. Top with grenadine, and serve. Be sure to use a clear glass for the full effect.

How about a Zombie?
Go to this link for the recipe. The reason I’m sending you there because they also have a video on how to make a flaming zombie.

Check out The Zombie Cookbook’s website at You’ll see the rest of the tour stops, story synopses, interviews, a video trailer, and links to the metal band called The Zombie Cookbook. Did I mention these guys wrote the intro to The Zombie Cookbook? They do indeed rock!
