After eating at Au Pied de Cochon, my friend and I walked to Le Lab. At the front of Le Lab, we met up with the people I had lunch with at Brasserie T! The world is full of coincidences. I ordered Zombie 1956 ($26 including tax) and my friend and I split it. The others had also ordered Zombie 1956 (two of them split it as well) and the other two ordered flaming shots.
Zombie 1956 is a cocktail that consists of homemade Falernum, Angostura bitters, lime, grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, homemade grenadine, maraschino liqueur, absinthe, rum and decorated with an Orchid flower, fruit slices, a leaf and a sugar cube. When it was placed in front of me, the waitress set the sugar cube on fire. The main reason I ordered this drink is because there’s absinthe in it although setting the drink on fire is a bonus. Absinthe is an alcoholic drink that has a high alcohol content and is falsely considered as a hallucinogenic drug. Zombie 1956 was delectable although it is quite large if consumed by only one person.
I’ll definitely come back here for the cocktails.
