Learn how to make the Original Zombie cocktail recipe:
For the Original Zombie recipe we use 3 types of rum, preferably use, dark rum, golden rum and overproof rum.
Fill a shaker with ice and add the rum, the lime juice, the lemon juice, the pineapple juice, the angostura bitters and the passion fruit syrup. Shake vigorously and strain your Zombie cocktail into a nice glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish your Zombie drink with a piece of passion fruit.
This is the Original Zombie from Jeff’s (beachbum Berry) book “Beachbum Berry’s Sipping Safari”. This recipe dates from around 1934. Berry found it in the 1937 in a notebook of Beachcomber waiter Dick Santiago, who had marked the recipe as “old.”
The Original Zombie is our cocktail of the day for January 6 when “The Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus celebrates his birthday.
