Featured Drink: Zombie Headhunter

This one is from the Hawaii Kai Cookbook. The actual name of the drink in the book is "Headhunter Zombie" but I've flipped the name around as it just sounds much cooler that way, besides this Hawaii Kai book is a bit sketchy. The Schindlers may have been a bit lit up when they put these recipes together. I've found two instances (so far) where the drink description did not match the recipe. The description for the "Waikiki Daquiri" mentions passion liqueur but the recipe does not contain it. The "Hawaiian Russian" is described as "Hawaiian wedding of Kona liqueur and vodka" but there's no Kona liqueur or coffee liqueur in the recipe! So for all I know this drink could actually be the "Zombie Headhunter" (it is the last drink listed in its section) and they just screwed up the name when putting the book together. Plus, in Jeff Berry's Grog Log prototype zine there is a drink called the "Zombie Headhunter" as was discussed on Tiki Central. Anyway...

This is a very strong drink that goes down quite easy. Two sips in and I immediately knew that tomorrow morning will be a tad rough which is too bad because I have things to do. You can really taste the demerera rum in this one. I used Lemon Hart 151 for the 151 required in the recipe. From the book:

Headhunter Zombie

Renowned as the "walking dead"! Two is the limit!

1 ounce papaya nectar
1 ounce peach nectar
1 ounce lime juice
1 1/2 ounces Demerera dark rum (86 proof)
1 ounce heavy dark rum (151 proof)
3/4 ounce gold rum
3/4 ounce honey
dash of angostura bitters

Pour all ingredients, except bitters, over 1/2 cup shaved ice. Blend! Pour mixture into 13-ounce frosted Zombie glass; add dash of bitters. Garnish with fancy pick, pineapple spear, red and green maraschino cherries, 8-inch straw, and paper parasol stuck in tip of straw. So here's mud-in-the-eye or, in graceful Hawaiian style, lea lea kakou--to happiness! And your response can be Mahalo, thank you or likepuol (the same to you). Serves 1.
