Zombie - das Rezept für den Cocktail Klassiker

Facts about the zombie cocktail:

  1. The original recipe comes from Donn Beach, the founder of the then famous tiki bar Don the Beachcomber in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, the bar was closed in the 80s.
  2. Originally, a maximum of two cocktails were served per customer due to the high alcohol content. The restriction was intended to prevent customers from getting too drunk. After all, the Zombie cocktail is supposed to be a pleasure and not an intoxicant.
  3. The Zombie is one of the strongest alcoholic cocktails available. It has an estimated alcohol content of 14.5 % vol.

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
