Although it’s been out for a while now, Professor Cocktail’s Zombie Horde: Recipes for the World’s Most Lethal Drink continues to generate interest. Two blogs, one devoted to Tiki and one devoted to rum, recently wrote about the book.
On his website, The Atomic Grog, Jim “Hurricane” Hayward uses Professor Cocktail’s Zombie Horde as the centerpiece for a comprehensive post about the Zombie, including ground that I wasn’t able to cover in the book.
“An exhaustive look back at the past 80 years of the never-say-die cocktail, revealed in all its gory glory in a new e-book, Professor Cocktail’s Zombie Horde: Recipes for the World’s Most Lethal Drink. Lovingly splayed across 193 e-pages are 86 recipes from 1934 to 2013, including many that have never before appeared in print…Zombie Horde is like a doctoral student’s well-researched dissertation.
Hayward knows his Tiki, so I’m honored that he enjoyed the book.
Another blogger who really knows her stuff is Helena Tiare Olsen, who writes the award-winning rum-focused website A Mountain of Crushed Ice.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who’s interested in tiki drinks and of course the Zombie. With such a gold mine of Zombie recipes from the 1934 original Zombie Punch to Bar Agricole’s Cap Haitien Zombie you just can`t go wrong.
Tiare mixed up a couple of recipes in the book and her photos are fantastic. Here is her shot of Martin Cate’s Undead Gentleman:
Mahalo to Jim and Tiare!
