Zombie | Cocktail Party

Zombie

Zombie rum cocktail

The meaning behind the name of this classic 1934 Don the Beachcomber recipe becomes apparent once you examine the ingredient list.

Credit for the survival of this maximalist treasure goes to Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, who dug up the original recipe and decrypted ingredients like “Spices #4” so that we could all enjoy it.

The recipe we like best is the Smuggler’s Cove adaptation, which goes even further in breaking down the ingredients, specifying an even split of blended and column still aged rums, along with a black blended overproof rum.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice (or flash-blend). Pour unstrained into a tall glass or tiki mug. Garnish with anything you like – a pineapple spear, cherry, and mint sprig are considered traditional.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
