He certainly knows his beers, but perhaps his taste buds are so keenly tuned that he can only appreciate dry, bitter tastes. Anything vaguely sweet probably just makes his hair straighten.

Of course, not all Zombie mixers pay such attention to detail as Tiki Centralites. It's more than likely that MJ's Zombie experience was at the hands of what we'd class as an amateur.

Still, should we meet, words about the Zombie will be spoken.

Well, look anybody willing to call themselves "Michael Jackson" these days can't be all that trustworthy now can they? What with dangling babies out the window and all that, who'd take 'em seriously? Clearly this man is an impostor. Zombies rule!

Tank use one and all for all the Zombie recipes! What frightening concoctions! Eerie zombie mug! Simplicity is best I believe, however so try out this basic brew. After my first, my face numbed, after the 2nd, I forgot my name:
ZOMBIE
2 oz. rum (any)
1 oz. apricot brandy
Then fill glass with equal parts fresh orange,lemon and grapefruit juices. Shake or stir with ice. A splash of grenadine is nice on top. You will be zombified!

A good start but methinks it needs more rum or it's not a Zombie. Throw some 151 in there too (Demarara if you have it). After 2 you should become the living dead!

There's a Zombie recipe in the BoT. Don't know the page, but I've blended that one and it's not bad. The best Zombie I've tasted is David Chan's blend at the Honolulu Restaurant in D.C.

^Just make sure to hand your car keys off to someone before you start drinking David's Zombies. Thankfully, I usually count on my wife to get me home from the Honolulu.

Here is another version.I found this gem of a book in a garage sale.The name of the rums shows it's age of the formula. I have not tried it yet(powdered sugar?).

This is from "The Official Mixer's Manual" by Patrick Gavin Duffy, Copy 1934, New York.

Zombie
3/4 oz. Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz. Papaya Juice
Juice of one lime
3/4 oz. Powdered Sugar
1/3 oz. Apple Brandy
1 oz. Rum, 90 Proof
2oz. Tropical Gold Seal Rum, 86 Proof
1 oz. White Label Rum
Ice generously and shake. Garnish with a slice of pinapple, a green and a red cherry. THEN FLOAT ON TOP RUM OF 151 PROOF. Top off with fine powdered sugar

The last time I had a Zombie was when I was at the Trader Vic's in Atlanta. It was alot different from the recipes that are in 'Intoxica' & 'Grog Log', and it actually seemed simpler to make. Joel (the bartender ) showed me, but I totally forgot and wish that I remembered it. I actually liked it more than the ones listed in the two books. The only thing that I can remember was that it had grenadine in it, and was red in color. Anybody know of this one?

Here's the recipe that I doubled at the collegiate national championship football game last year. There were 30 people here. The recipe says it's for 60 - so we had a people to booze factor of 1 to 4. Vic must have hung out with sissies.

From the Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink:

2 bottles Red Heart or Myers
4 bottles Ron Merito or Brugal
1 bottle Demerara 151 (Lemon Hart)
2 bottles DeKuyper or Nuyens Curacao
3 quarts lemon juice
3 quarts orange juice
1 quart grenadine
2 ounces Herbsaint or Pernod.

Mix ingredients thouroughly, chill with large cake of ice in punch bowl, letting it stand an hour or two before serving.

Ohio State won and we all danced around for about 2 hours singing and hugging and crying.
Hey, it's been a while.

Also - some of the crowd wouldn't touch our offering and drank several cases of beer.

Hey Kava King...

Yowshuh!!!!! That sounds about right. I'll try that one. As I recall the recipe wasn't too complicated, and that one you listed doesn't seem complicated either. I'll get on that right away. Thanks! Now if I could only get this mouse out of my kitchen.....

I was just emailed the Bali Ha'i version of the zombie recipe, tasty!

Zombie
Makes 1 drink
Ice
1 ounce light rum
1 ounce Meyers Original Dark Rum
1/2 ounce triple sec
Dash of creme de noyaux or grenadine
2 ounces orange juice
2 ounces sweet and sour mix or pineapple juice
1/2 ounce 151-proof rum

Garnish
1 pineapple, orange or lemon wedge
1 maraschino cherry
1 tiki umbrella

Fill a 14-1/2-ounce glass with ice. Over the ice, pour rums, triple sec, creme de noyaux, orange juice and sweet and sour mix. Stir contents. Top with 151-proof rum. Garnish and serve.

(From Sam Choy's Hawaii at the Bali Ha'i.)
