I have a copy of The Official Mixer's Manual, by Patrick Gavin Duffy. It is apparently a 1940 reprint of the 1934 edition...
...I suspect the Zombie was inserted for the 1940 printing, because it differs in style from the other recipes...


I confirmed my suspicion. The Zombie recipe was NOT in Duffy's original 1934 version. I found a Google image of that same page (209) from the 1934 edition. After the 'Sunshine Cocktail', there was just empty space. The Zombie was added in the empty space, beginning with the 1940 edition.
page 209, 1934 and 1940 versions

Thanks for confirming that. It was my assumption as well that Duffy would not have been so on the ball as to have had a Zombie recipe in 1934 if that was the very year Donn invented it.

I have an 1980 edition of David A. Embury's Mixing Drinks (originally The Art of Mixing Drinks) but I'm not sure if the Zombie appeared in either the 1948 or 1953 editions. He actually has an interesting, if a little controversial, write up on the Zombie:



That's in the original 1948 version, according to someone who has it. Amusing, although a bit overblown.

I'll vouch for the Duffy version (as reprinted in the 1st ed of Grog Log). It may be way off from the original, but it will zombify you nonetheless. Also introduced me to the wonders of Applejack; gotta love that!

I'm guessing this was one of AdOrAdam's first references: http://wiki.webtender.com/wiki/Zombie
It gives a pretty good picture of some of the earliest publications referencing this recipe, although it looks like they got the date wrong on Duffy. Even still, would Duffy's 1940 edition be the earliest appearance of a zombie recipe in a bartender's guide? I'm guessing that 1938 Winnipeg Free Press reference was from a newspaper and the next appearance so far is 1941. My guess is that Duffy's was the first in print to include a fruit brandy (apple brandy, which seems to have translated into apricot-flavored brandy from there) and pineapple and papaya juices, which certainly became common in printed recipes thereafter. However, I assume this recipe was based on widespread imitations that would have been popping up all over in the mid-to-late 30s, especially after the 1938 World's Fair. I wonder how much influence these imitations had on Donn's amended 1950s recipe, or was it just that he felt tastes had changed? This discussion seems familiar and is probably already summed up in another thread. Let's keep on track here! Any clues on how some of the other big temples were doing their zombies back in the day?

BTW, readers of this thread may wish to dip back into this earlier Zombie Recipe discussion. It begins before, and continues after, Berry acquired the loose-leaf pocket drink notebook of Dick Santiago, who worked at Don's between 1937-53, with its Zombie Punch recipe.

I've updated it with my discovery that the Zombie recipe was NOT in the initial 1934 edition of Duffy's The Official Mixer's Manual, since that was also a controversy within that thread.

That's quite the endeavor! I'll be curious to see what contributions you get... TC has been around for a long time and I'm sure for most if the old timers it seems like lots of topics have been discussed to death. I, for one, appreciate your enthusiasm!

Sadly, I have nothing to contribute



Cheers TikiTacky, much appreciated comment for a 1st poster. I second the motion: Tiki Central needs a 'I, for one, appreciate your enthusiasm! Sadly, I have nothing to contribute' button

Not even that! My first recipe was this miscellaneous one:
http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink624.html

I subbed the overproof rum & brought apricot brandy specially for the occasion... I was severally disappointed! In fairness, I knew how to make cocktails back then but tiki requires a bit more 'something' I have more of now. I didnt try another Zombie til I got Sippin Safari about a year ago.

I read that post before creating this thread - cheers to you Mr Limbo Lizard Note the post by Alnshely on page one - pretty much the 1934 Zombie isnt it? Considering it was posted in 2003, four years before Sippin Safari was posted...

We're up to 32 recipes now (chronologically ordered on page 1)
