Everyday Life with Erin

Exploring the Beauty of YYC

Nestled within a hundred year old building in the heart of Bridgeland, Waalflower knows what they’re doing when it comes to cocktails. Their menu is beautifully hand-crafted and contains a variety of drinks which are sure to please any guest. Each option provides a complexity of flavours and is presented in a manner where every detail counts.

Sampling a few choice options, I was drawn to the historical nature of the Zombie. This cocktail dates back to 1934, where Don Beach concocted the drink to help a hungover customer survive a business meeting. The customer returned numerous days later, complaining that he had been turned into a zombie for his entire trip, and thus the zombie cocktail came into fruition. At Waalflower, the drink contains Jamaican, Demerara, and over-proof rum, absinthe, falernum, grenadine, angostura bitters, pink grapefruit juice, and is of course garnished with fire. Try it if you dare!
