Zombie

Don the Beachcomber’s Zombie, From the Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails:
Shake in iced cocktail shaker & strain:
1 oz unsweetened pineapple juice (3 cl, 1/4 gills)
1 oz fresh lime juice (3 cl, 1/4 gills)
1 oz fresh lemon juice (3 cl, 1/4 gills)
1 oz passion fruit syrup (3 cl, 1/4 gills)
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 dash bitters
1 oz light rum (3 cl, 1/4 gills)
1 oz dark rum (3 cl, 1/4 gills)
1 oz 151 rum (3 cl, 1/4 gills)
Dissolve the brown sugar in the lemon juice. Combine it with everything else in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Shake well, and pour into a collins glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.
This recipe is apparently the original, quintessential Zombie drink, which, unfortunately, has been altered and messed with over the years.
