Zombie Cocktails and Other Halloween Fare To Die For Giveaway

A couple of Sundays back I was watching Mad Men and learned an interesting tidbit: The Zombie Cocktail was first popularized at the 1939 World’s Fair.

Huh, I didn’t even know there was such a drink as a zombie cocktail! (I’m not a big drinker, though, so that’s not too surprising. Mainly because I turn into quite the party animal when I imbibe. I don’t know how to handle my liquor without getting all crazy!)

At any rate, I still have a few more prizes to giveaway, including a Gothic witch chalkboard (perfect menu for advertising your meals du jour) and a set of toxic wine labels (transform your regular wine into wicked potent concoctions).

Gothic Debutante Chalkboard
Toxic Wine Labels

HOW TO ENTER

PART A – Answer either one of the following questions by leaving a comment below:

  1. If there was a zombie apocalypse would you want to be a survivor or a zombie? OR
  2. If there was a zombie apocalypse who would you like to see become a zombie so you could legally do them in? (You don’t have to give names. You can simply say friend, family member, neighbor, teacher, mean lady at the checkout, etc…)

AND

PART B – Be sure to tell me which prize you’d like to win:

  1. Chalkboard
  2. Wine Labels
  3. Both

ZOMBIE COCKTAIL RECIPE

If you’re interested in making one (they sound pretty delicious actually) here’s what you’ll need:

1 part white rum

1 part golden rum

1 part dark rum

1 part papaya juice

½ part 151-proof rum

Dash of grenadine or other syrup

Mix ingredients other than the 151-proof rum in a shaker with ice. Pour into glass and top with the high-proof rum. Garnish with a cherry or orange slice or both and enjoy!

  1. no last name but van is the first and since i love playing zombies on xbox i am more of the blow the legs off at the knees and laugh at him while he is crawling around and then finnish him off

  2. Lets just say if a zombie named mark came staggering over to me-first id shoot his legs off,then laugh at him & tease him for a bit then i would shoot him in the head,no more misery!!!!!

  3. Well why would you want to be a survivor in an apocalypse, just to get zombied??? So I choose to be a zombie in the case of an apocalypse (it’s gonna happen either way, right)

    To give the others the best chance to win, I of course want them both!!

    (What a question to ask my dear friend)!! Now I get to think about this all day!

  4. Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be drinking that. Just one ingredient would make me hit the floor. Hee hee
    I want to see a Pat Robertson zombie.
    I’d love to have the chalkboard.
    What a fun giveaway!

  5. Part A: I’d definitely want to be a survivor! I have my flame thrower all ready to go!

    Part B: I can’t tell you how much I’d love to own that witchy chalkboard!

    Thanks so much for having such a fun giveaway!

  6. This is an easy question to answer. I would like to see Paris Hilton turned into a zombie. *starts chainsaw*

    I would like to win the chalk board.

    Mommy D

  7. The Chalkboard is so cute! Never seen something like that!

    Oh… I would rather be a survivor and try to face and beat all the damn zombies, lol!

    Thanks for this cool giveaway!

    Kisses from Nydia.

  8. A: I personally would rather be a survivor. Being zombified sounds painful. plus it just makes you all slow. I would rather take my chance and at least try to live.
    B: I really like the chalboard.
    Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  9. Oh, wow, I’d want to survive, then become a widow if you get my drift. hahaha Don’t want to be greedy, but I’d choose both, or either or The chalkboard is so cool. Dianne in UT, p.s. I’m enjoying all the Facebook posts! I don’t want the month to end :~(

  10. If there was a Zombie Apocalypse I’d like to see my one of exes get zombie-fied so that he could be as you phrased it “legally done in” lol. Then I’d get to see that whole “what goes around comes around” adage be true. =)

    I would love to win the chalkboard!

  11. I would like to be a survivor. I probably wouldn’t last very long, but for the duration I’d be giving others a chance to live by sending as many zombies to Hell as the machetes kept sharp. (As for whom I’d want to be a zombie…that would be a list the size of the Oxford Dictionary and would probably get me on a few watch lists, if you know what I mean. 😉 Course, I won’t name names as you requested.)

    Prize-wise, I’ll take both. The chalkboard looks like something straight out of the Victorian Era. A very lovely addition to someone’s collection. The labels would come in handy for a future Halloween party or Zombie movie marathon with a few select friends. You have excellent tastes in prizes. My warmest compliments.

  12. haha..I would want to be a survivor. i think it would be too hard to keep track of all my body parts as a zombie 😀 and they really aren’t that articulate….LOL

    I am totally in love with the chalk board!! That is my choice 🙂

    Thanks Courtney for doing these fun give aways!!

    btw…would there be cat zombies?? ack!
