Zombie #1 (Intoxica! Recipe)

View Recipe

Haitians celebrated their independence yesterday and today is Ancestors’ Day, when they remember the people who lost their lives in the struggle for Haitian independence.


Haitians today still follow vodou, a belief system that includes worshipping spirits. Pulp fiction likes to suggest that Haiti is the home of the zombie, and today you can create your own Zombie. We suggest you follow Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's reconstruction of Donn the Beachcomber's original recipe, as featured in Berry's book Intoxica.

Donn Beach was a Prohibition bootlegger who later owned a chain of California-based restaurants, bars and nightclubs that are said to have been the first Tiki-style joints.
