P. S – Zombie is a cocktail made of fruit juices, liqueurs, and various rums. The Zombie is the twentieth century’s most storied cocktail, with its invention becoming the touchstone for the first wave of Tiki cocktails in the middle of the last century. It first appeared in late 1934, invented by Donn Beach (formerly Ernest Raymond Beaumont-Gannt) of Hollywood’s Don the Beachcomber restaurant. Legend has it that Donn Beach originally concocted the Zombie to help a hung-over customer get through a business meeting. The customer returned several days later to complain that he had been turned into a zombie for his entire trip.
