Zombie_CRDT Dylan & JeniDonn Beach was infamously cagey about sharing his cocktail recipes, especially the one for his legendary Zombie cocktail, but tiki expert Jeff Berry pieced the recipe together through historical research and lucky encounters with former Beachcomber employees.

1½ oz. Jamaican rum
1½ oz. gold Puerto Rican rum
1 oz. 151-proof Demerara rum
⅛ tsp. Herbsaint or Pernod
½ oz. falernum
½ oz. Donn’s Mix
1 tsp. grenadine
1 dash Angostura bitters
6 oz. crushed ice
Tools: blender
Glass: chimney
Garnish: mint sprig

Put everything in blender, saving the ice for last. Blend at high speed for no more than 5 seconds. Pour into a glass and add ice cubes to fill. Garnish.
