In the great pantheon of classic tiki bar cocktails, the Zombie has to be one of the best. The Zombie Cocktail is a blend of rums, citrus, pineapple and spice. Invented by Don the Beachcomber, or Donn Beach as he was legally known, in 1934, the Zombie helped to kick off the tiki cocktail craze.
There is some dispute about who invented the Mai Tai. It really comes down to two amiable tiki rivals - Trader Vic Bergeron and Donn Beach, aka Don the Beachcomber.
