Two Tuesdays ago, I was feeling the need for a tropical drink to beat the mid-August heat wave, so I reached for Beachbum Berry's Remixed. In the Zombie section was the recipe that Louis Spievak attributed to Don the Beachcomber in Spievak's 1950 Barbecue Chef. The recipe was a lot closer to the Hot Zombie found in the 1941 Ron Rico Rum Company recipe book than the 1934 Zombie associated with Donn Beach though. Beach's Zombie did change through the years, but it is believed that either Spievak fabricated this recipe or one of his sources provided him with this less than authentic variation.
