The next team up for Major League Drinks is going to be the Chicago Cubs. Chicago is known for being cold and windy and therefor I needed to find a drink that was cold and “windy” enough to put you on your ass aka STRONG! Our Chicago boys better be excited for this one!
I found this recipe on a website called “Supercall” known for strong cocktails and it legit said it was a “drink that will knock you on your ass.” It’s called a Zombie and looks deadly and according to the website, “the Zombie is intended for recreational use on a very limited basis,” which basically means its strong as fuck and you shouldn’t drink too many unless you want to wake up on a park bench with someone else’s clothes on and no shoes. But, I figure if Chicago fans can handle the cold, then they can handle this drink, and if not, then they need to toughen up!
Side Note: This drink is red so it matches the Cubs uniforms, too. Double Whammy.
