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.
