Perfect Drink® recipe


Another famous tiki drink, the Zombie is reportedly the creation of Donn Beach (aka Ernest Gantt), the original owner of the famous Hollywood Boulevard bar Don The Beachcomber. Gantt supposedly came up with the concoction to help a hung-over customer through a meeting, but the customer returned saying the drink had turned him into a "zombie" and the drink was named. The drink's fruity flavor serves to mask its high alcohol content.
