'The Walking Dead' Cocktail Party
After a record-breaking premiere in 2011, AMC’s The Walking Dead finally returned on Sunday, continuing its characters' quests to stay alive. In a world overrun by zombies, it might be difficult to sit down for a nice dinner, but one could definitely use a drink. If you want to party like a zombie-attack survivor, here are some ideas for your own Walking Dead cocktail party.
The food of choice for Zombies are brains. You can draw inspiration from this love of brains for your appetizers and serve brain-flavored dishes, similar to what The Gory Gourmet Food Truck of London did. Or, for the less adventurous, create a playful twist on some of your favorite appetizers.
- Skewered Heart: Grilled beef on a "spear" in your favorite marinade
- Severed Fingers: Pigs in a blanket
- Bloody Eyeballs: Small mozzarella balls with an olive slice in a shallow bowl of marinara sauce
- Salty Bones: Take a tube of refrigerated breadstick dough and form it into the shape of small bones, sprinkle on a bit of course salt, then bake and serve
To end things on a sweet note, have some eyeball-decorated cupcakes for dessert.
As we gear up for the start of the third season, indulge your zombie cravings with a The Walking Dead-themed cocktail party. Follow these easy tips to make your cocktail party come to life… again.
