What to Drink to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse
Thankfully we haven’t had to endure a zombie apocalypse (yet…), but in case one’s coming our way we came up with some drinks that will surely get you through the darkest days
Today on The Daily Meal
Imagine being trapped in a building and being unable to leave because there are blood-thirsty zombies surrounding you at every entrance. Your first thought probably isn’t going to be, "Oh man, I have nothing to drink." You’re probably going to be more concerned about how you’re going to survive this ridiculous disease that has swept the world and created a real-life apocalypse. But if all your lifelines are used up and you have barely enough food to last you a month, the major concern will become what to drink. How do you find potable drinking water when zombie corpses are traipsing through rivers and streams and contaminating your supply? Scary thought, huh?
Both of these options seem viable. But we’re taking a great leap here assuming you’re holed up in a mall with all the necessary resources for survival at your fingertips. What if you’re in a Walking Dead situation where you’ve hit the road and you’re surviving on your basic primal instincts? You’re definitely going to need water, but you need something that’s going to replace the electrolytes you’re burning through by killing zombies on a regular basis, too. You need to think about hydration! Sports drinks are too sugary and you may have raided all of the local gas stations of their Powerade and Gatorade, so now you’re stuck with the produce section of the grocery store. Remember to take your silencer when you’re shooting grocery-store zombies in the head, because you’re going to need pineapples, oranges, limes, and lemons, because these are viable sources of hydration and a great source of energy (and vitamin c).
It would be ridiculous to think you'd have an actual juicer on hand during a zombie apocalypse, but we’re assuming you have a really sharp knife if you’ve made it this far, so slice that fruit in half and squeeze! It’s the best way to produce a natural beverage that will offer hydration and energy — two things you cannot live without during a zombie apocalypse. We came up with a couple of drinks that are necessary to survive any zombie apocalypse!
