Jeff “Beachbum” Berry has spent years uncovering the recipes for original tiki drinks from the ’30s and ’40s. The Zombie is a Don the Beachcomber signature cocktail that has been poorly reinterpreted over the years, most often as a bad drink resembling a tropical Long Island iced tea. This recipe dates to about 1934. Berry found it in the 1937 notebook of Beachcomber waiter Dick Santiago, who had marked the recipe “old.”
