I don't know. The owner makes a big deal about authenticity, especially regarding Don the Beachcomber, but the Zombie he's serving looks to be the Patrick Gavin Duffy version.






Excellent point, Arriano! Beachbum Berry somewhat makes the point - and Trader Vic absolutely emphatically states, that when you keep a recipe a secret, others are free to interpret it and decide what the "official" recipe is. So far, it looks like the "LA's Ray's Mistake" recipe published by the Pagosaa Springs, Colorado booze store is the same one being used by this restaurant on the East Coast.

It also means that the Ray's Mistake is taking on a life of its own. I wouldn't be surprised to see it start appearing at Bars across the USA. And as the Trader warned, the reinterpretations will be sweet syrupy drinks that make everyone gag. When the Washington Post publishes the ingredients for Ray's Mistake, the drink is about to "Jump the Shark".
