Bloody Sun

This concoction is one of the rare case to use Bols Red Orange. Unintelligible cocktail was found on Drinksmixer – a dump of strange cocktail recipe.


Bloody Sun

20 ml gin
20 ml Bols Red Orange liqueur
10 ml Cointreau
orange juice
Shake gin, orange liqueur and cointreau. Pour into a glass filled with ice cubes and fill with orange juice. Old-Fashioned glass.

It is ordinary “tropical” drink with light, sweet and citrus taste. Nothing special.

My Zombie #7

I think Zombie is amazing cocktail. I investigate recipe of this cocktail during long time, and I understand that Zombie is a complex, well-balanced strong tiki-drink with a lot of variations. It is good for me. I have not falernum or 151-proof rum, which are mentioned in many recipes, but I have many excellent componenets such as aged damerara rums or exotic liqueurs, which I would try in this cocktail.

I construct own Zombie recipe with mix of four citrus juices, passion fruit syrup, exotic orange liqueur and four rums. Please try it and comment my creations.


Zombie #7

10 ml fresh lime juice
10 ml fresh lemon juice
10 ml fresh grapefruit juice
50 ml fresh orange juice
15 ml passion fruit syrup
1 tsp. grenadine
30 ml BOLS Red Orange liqueur
20 ml white rum
20 ml gold rum
20 ml dark rum
1 dash Angostura bitters
15 ml aged damerara rum
Shake all ingredients (except damerara rum) in ice-filled shaker. Strain in to zombie glass (or hurricane) with crushed ice. Float damerara rum. Garnish with exotic fruit.


Admirable!!! It is beautifull drink. I think, what I would try many variations of Zombie on this summer.
