'The Zombie' Cocktail Film by BACARDÍ Pays Tribute to Horror Movies

'The Zombie' is the name of a new cocktail film from BACARDÍ that shares a recipe, along with plenty of creepy imagery that's perfect for the lead-up to Halloween.

For the making of The Zombie, BACARDÍ shares that one will need BACARDÍ Superior white rum, BACARDÍ Black—a premium dark rum—and triple sec, orange juice, grenadine and sweet and sour mix.

In terms of imagery, the first-person cocktail film reminds of old-school horror movies and has a gritty, grainy aesthetic. The recipe video pulls inspiration from classics like The Shining, The Ring, Saw and Psycho and sets the scene with someone inserting a BACARDÍ-branded videotape into a TV. There are also citrus fruits that are stitched together like Frankenstein's monster, oranges that are crushed with spiky devices, dripping bottles of red liquid and shadowy hands that appear in front of the camera.
