Product description

Product Description

One of the world's most sublime drinking pleasures, the Zombie is the cocktail that launched a thousand Tiki bars. A sweet and sour mélange of citrus, spice, and lots of rum, the Zombie stands as one of the most significant cocktails of the past century. Created by Don the Beachcomber in 1934, the Zombie took the world by storm, and soon became the quintessential Tiki drink. Eventually, it would appear on the menus of thousands of bars and restaurants around the world.

In Zombie Horde, David J. Montgomery (aka Professor Cocktail) leads you on a journey through the history of the Zombie, starting with its humble beginnings in Hollywood, and following it as it evolved and spread over the decades. Zombie Horde includes recipes from notable bartenders like Trader Vic, David Embury, Salvatore Calabrese, and Dale DeGroff, as well as the formulas for the Zombies served at famous Tiki joints like the Tonga Room in San Francisco, Frankie's Tiki Room in Las Vegas, and the Luau Room in San Diego.

It also includes recent cocktails that were inspired by the Zombie, with offerings from Martin Cate (Smuggler's Cove), Brian Miller (Death & Company), Allan Katz (Caña Rum Bar), Brian Dressel (Midnight Cowboy), and Audrey Saunders (Pegu Club).

As a special bonus, Zombie Horde showcases seven new drinks -- from Jim Meehan (PDT), Tom Brown (Hogo), Jeff Kinder (Distil), Joseph Swifka (La Descarga), Craig Lane (Bar Agricole), Jack Fetterman (PKNY), and Frank Cisneros (Bourgeois Pig Brooklyn) -- that are appearing in print for the first time. Also making their print debut are the recipes for the Zombies served at Mahiki in London, Otto's Shrunken Head in New York City, and Founding Farmers in Washington, D.C.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good the Bad And the Ugly 15 October 2013
By Steven Fellini - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The most important thing about this ebook is that it is (almost) all inclusive, including the good and the bad. To see what went wrong after the Zombie's heyday one has to see the drink recips that came afterwards. Gone were the absinthe and bitters notes; all that was left was fruit. And most encouraging are the more recent takes on the Zombie, returning to the original touches while adding new ones.

1.0 out of 5 stars Zombie Horde: Dead on Arrival 23 September 2014
By W. Moore - Published on
Verified Purchase
Sadly, I was taken in by the large number of good reviews and discounted the more accurate critical reviews. This (evidently) self-published book is like a bound stack of print-outs from a cocktail website...LITERALLY. In almost all of the cases, the author details where the recipes originate...many from other published works...books, newspaper articles or websites. There is no design to speak of. Even the typeface shows the pixels as if it were printed on a bad dot matrix printer. I knew the minute I opened it that I would not be keeping it even though I am a compulsive tropical cocktail book purchaser. Save your money...spend it, as another reviewer suggested...on a Beachbum Berry title.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive book on the definitive Tiki drink 9 October 2013
By Vince Keenan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Zombie is the foundation on which the mighty temple of Tiki stands. Yet much of its history is shrouded in mystery. We know it was first poured by the legendary Don the Beachcomber in 1934. But what exactly was Don pouring? And how close to or wide of the mark were his many, many imitators?

Wonder no longer, because David J. Montgomery (in his guise as Professor Cocktail) is here to serve as your personal Indiana Jones and unearth Tiki's greatest treasure. In an exhaustive yet entertaining work of scholarship, Montgomery scours available sources to compile every Zombie known to man, living, dead and undead.

Montgomery starts with the master, featuring not one but several recipes attributed to Don the Beachcomber including the one recognized as the original. He surveys variations from Trader Vic's, other joints famed and forgotten, and renowned bartenders of history. Montgomery offers savvy, honest criticism of each, like advice about which ones to avoid and spirit suggestions. Want whiskey and rum versions? They're here, too. PROFESSOR COCKTAIL'S ZOMBIE HORDE also boasts several never-before-published riffs on the classic from noted contemporary mixologists like Jim Meehan of New York's PDT.

Written with senses of both history and humor, PROFESSOR COCKTAIL'S ZOMBIE HORDE finally gives one of the greatest and most misunderstood of mixed drinks the treatment it deserves. Once you're done reading, a bottle of rum won't be enough. You'll require several.

Just about every zombie recipe you could want. I will say though, after trying several, it's hard to improve on the original 1934 Donn Beach recipe, but a fun book to have in your cocktail library.
