  • Solid. Essentially a Jet Pilot, but works nicely in this up-served variation. Quantity of ingredients are a tad much for my coupe glasses, but there are worse problems to have. — ★★★★

Comments

More of a Jet Pilot than a Zombie - it's pretty much literally a Jet Pilot with the Herbstura separated and the absinthe/herbsaint being used as a wash, served up. Probably my favorite flavor combo, but I do prefer it over crushed ice. Still delicious.


Suave Zombie or sophisticated Jet Pilot? Delicious either way!
