ZombieFest 2017

Good Neighbor, keep it simple. Rum, Lime, and Demerara Sugar. Over 100 years later, this classic has stood the test of revolutions and time. Served up, and drank by some of the most notable figures of the past century. 
Not quite as old as the Daiquiri, we serve this “Tommy” style, but with a twist. 
In this version of a Bloody Mary, the history of the rough seas is interpreted through the heat, the lime, and the monsters, oh my! 
Our take on a famous drink that we can’t name from a famous bar that we can’t name somewhere on another island that well, we can’t name. Drinking will continue until morale improves.
This secret concoction that may or may not have included brains remained a mystery for a long time until someone discovered the missing ingredient! We’ll never tell. We pay respect to the original recipe, only two Zombies per person and no more! Proceed with caution!
Lets get the record straight that there should be no grenadine in a Mai Tai. Or triple sec. Or pineapple juice. 
The original recipe from 1944 focuses on highlighting the rum using only a few key ingredients, with some added floral notes to accompany your fresh “lei”.
There’s a certain kind of “in the know” popularity to the Jungle Bird. Rumor is that the cocktail was created in Kuala Lumpur as a hotel welcome drink during a short tiki revival in the 1970s, however, no one knows who created the recipe. Thankfully, it was eventually discovered in a thrift store paperback two decades later to be re-published for us all to enjoy.
Sometimes a drink just comes along that is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s 1941; combine a spirit unknown at the time, with ginger beer, and a surplus of post-WW2 copper, next door to the Tiki Take-Off. Right place, right time: Boom.
“If it weren’t for the Sling, the Tiki Revolution may have never been born.”
This cocktail, absent of any rum, is the recipe from the Raffles Hotel in Singapore that became a tiki legend. 
Paanch, Hindi word for Five.  One part sour, two parts sweet, three parts strong, four parts weak, and a spice.  When rum was first introduced into history it quickly became one of the most profitable commodities of the new world resulting in a surplus of booze, sugar, spices, and money. It was also almost always accompanied with a shipment of citrus.
