  3. Vigorously shake the mixture for 35 seconds to combine and then pour into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve immediately.

From what I've learned recently, Don had three different recipes that he released between 1936 and 1956. The one you have listed is the "simplified" version, and a good tasting and simple one to make. The 1956 version seems to be the most detailed and probably the lst of the versions of the Zombie that Don created. created

I love a good zombie. I wish it wasn't so hard to find 151 Demerara rum. I always have to substitute with another dark rum.
