The Zombie is a tiki cocktail whose main feature is a large quantity of rum in which the alcoholic bite is disguised or smoothed out by the presence of a variety of fruit juices.  This bar-drink typically has the alcoholic punch of three generous cocktails.

(Don the Beachcomber is credited with the origin of the Zombie.)

The Zombie

1 1/2 oz Light rum
1 1/2 oz Dark Rum
1/2 oz Apricot Brandy
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz Orange Juice
1 oz Lime Juice
1 tsp Simple Syrup (Dissolve a sugar cube in 1 Tsp hot water then let it cool)
5 Large Ice Cubes
1 oz Over proof rum

Shake the first seven ingredients with the ice cubes in a cocktail shaker
Pour into a tall glass with the ice.
Float the last ounce of overproof rum on top.


Here are two more specific recipes designed by me for certain particular Rums:

The Zombie Plantation

1 1/2 Oz Plantation Guayana (Old Reserve)
3/4 Oz  Plantation Trinidad (Old Reserve)
1/2 oz  Apricot Brandy
1/4 oz Amaretto
1 oz Pineapple juice
1 oz Orange juice
1/2 oz Lime juice
1/2 oz Lemon juice
1 tsp Agave Syrup
Large Ice Cubes
Crushed Ice
Ice Chunks
1/2 oz Plantation Original Dark 73 % Overproof Rum
several slices of Orange, Lime and Lemon

Fill a tall glass with crushed ice and ice chunks
Add the slices of citrus fruit
Shake the first 9 ingredients with the ice cubes in a cocktail shaker
Strain into the tall glass filled with ice and citrus slices
Float the Plantation Original Dark Overproof Rum on the top
Enjoy very slowly as this cocktail has a lot of kick!
