Dead Love: Brain Candy

Brains, brains, brains … on the hunt for a little brain candy?? Yum. Here’s the not-so-secret recipe—two, actually. The first uses Alizé, the cognac-based liquor … very popular these days. The second is basically coffee with a blood-red kick. OK, it is a little loving-hands-at-home for this zombie gal, but picture me in the little cocktail dress and apron stirring the pot. This zombie is in the kitchen! Try them both, then you choose. Top off with more brain food: brain cookies or chocolate brains.

  • 1 oz. coconut rum

    Yummy. Next time a zombie comes craving brains, I know what to do!

  • That’s what they REALLY want. A little alcohol, a little sugar and you have a happy zombie.
