A book entirely devoted to one of my favorite tiki drinks – the Zombie!!
For the first time ever (as far as i know) has an entire book been written about ONE tiki drink, the famous Zombie. That`s how much this drink fascinates…
Now the book does of course not contain only one Zombie [...]
“The Zombie is not Lemonade”
This is the drink that made the tiki drinks famous! invented by Don the Beachcomber and so influential that people named their bars after it.
If you have had a well made zombie you know what i`m talking about…

Oh how i wish sometimes that i could just for a day or two transport myself back to the time where the tiki drinks were served with rums like the 17 year old JWray, the quintessential Mai Tai rum or for example the Jamaican Dagger rums…

I`m serving it in my third mug from the Fireworks studio in Glagow, the coconut mug. I could have made a drink that contains [...]
Tiki Month is already half gone…at least on the Pegu blog and therefore it´s time i come up with a drink in my next mug of the three i got from the Fireworks Studio.
There`s so many great tiki mug makers out there and i have a bunch on my list. I`m not obsessed [...]
