On National Rum Day, enjoy the rummiest classic recipe we could find. From our 1941 edition of W.C. Whitfield's drink mixing masterpiece 'Here's How' - a Zombie cocktail that calls for no fewer than five (5) different varieties of rum.
And if we had any braaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiinssssssss, we'd recall where we'd last seen our Zombie glass...

Many thanks to my swell pal Heather O'Donnell of Bauman Rare Books for bringing this magical volume into my life.
From tomorrow on,I will care foodstuff and vegetable.

Where I live you can't get a cocktail or beer and go watch a movie in a theatre. I would love to do that. People can drink till they punch each other out at professional sports arenas. It's not fair.
No wonder Islam forbids alcohol.
Hey, CNN, if all you need for this stupid EATOCRACY portion of your site is someone to take photos of pages from a cookbook, couldn't you train a chimp to do it and save yourself whatever cost you have going out in salary to Kat Kinsman?
Chimps take notoriously poor care of their cookbooks. Mine are in really good condition, so I got the job.
It comes as little surprise to see you say that your cookbooks are still in excellent condition. After all, it's painfully apparent that you've never actually used any of them.
hey, don't listen to them, they're just mad cause they have tiny little weiners!!!!!
I second the cocktail weenie comment. Kyle's is miniscule, and he hasn't seenit in years anyway.
Kyle has practically admitted as much. I mean after all, if he has not had sex in 14 years then it has to be a case of infantile genitalia. Still, a funny little pr ick, though.
Plus, do you realize how hard it is to train a chimp? You'd think it was easy, just a few banana bribes. But one banana becomes two, and then three. Pretty soon, your office is covered in bananas and poo, the thermostat has been turned all the way up, and when you yell, you're drowned out by relentless unearthly screeches.
No. Much better to hire a trained professional, with nice, clean cookbooks.
Out of work and bitter mettle69?
It would seem that you have some beef with Kat and/or Eatocracy in general, yet you keep showing up here and spewing your hate. Why bother? There is a great big internet out there just waiting for you and I'm sure some blogs with like minded individuals who might actually appreciate your comments.
Likewise... if your personal opinion is that you don't care for my comments, then why don't you just ignore me and move on to another post? I don't harangue you when I see you blow sunshine up Kinsman's skirt about how much you like what she does, so you don't get to hassle me when I have an opinion that's contrary to yours.
Mettle69 obviously worked with or for Kat Kinsmen at some point and is really bitter about something. I would guess she fired an worthless assistant, got her job over this guy who still thinks he's superior, etc. No one has that much hate towards a specific total stranger. I bet if Kat thinks about it, she could figure out who mettle69 is.
Well, RedinAustin, you're not terribly adept as a psychic. Despite your suspicions, I have never met Ms. Kinsman, let alone worked with or (heaven forfend) for her.
So you're just a crazy internet stalker then. I feel so sorry for you.
And you have the great misfortune of being a Texan. Please accept my condolences.
Oh dear, you insulted Texas. Oh no, anything but that! How ever will I cope? Mettle69 has cut me to the quick with that barb about being Texan. Oh the humanity! Good-night you bitter, bitter man.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste..except in your case. Please hold your breath and slowly count to 100,if you can even count.
do you people have any idea how hard it is to get your hands on a 1940's cook book that has not been destroyed????? good job on finding this one...don't know where to find the red rum though ........chef bob
There is no reason that EVERY day can't be National Rum Day!
Zombies eat brains. They are not known to drink anything.
Need to have my dyslexia tuned-up. I've been reading the headline as "Pour Zombie into Glass" and wondering where I could find me one that's been liquified.
Oh, wait. It turns out I'm still paying my AOL bill. Does anyone know how to shut the thing off, or fix my brain?
Let's put this plastic bag over your head...............yep,that should do it.
you sir are a rectal wart upon the buttocks of this blog. Please leave forthwith!
my goodness!! this has been beyond hilarious. Kyle is not just an internet troll... he is damn funny. I've rather enjoyed his truths in response to such idiocy...
as for the article... rum was always my poison of choice so its nice to see variations.
If you think he's funny, offer him a job or something and get him off my couch.
Weeeelllllllllll, Kyle's mom's a......
I have to say, the most interesting thing about this article is reading what Kyle wrote and everyone's reaction to it. Very unexpected when I clicked the article.
As for the article itself, I wish it were a little more than just a photo. And as a former bartender, there are tons of different "zombie" recipes.
Wow. You people taking Kyle seriously are complete morons. He's clearly trolling... Way to be a bunch of rubes.
Perfect Zombie.. I recommend blended.
Can't go wrong with a well made Zombie. Best to stop after 2 though; anymore than that and it gets hard to find your car...
That's the drink they invite you in Puerto Rico when someone does not like you and wants to turn you into a fool with a "magic potion". After drinking it, you are guaranteed to become a fool in less than 60 seconds. If it does not work, your next round is free. Sponsored by the house. I am familiar with it because I've been occasionally stupified in my younger days in Puerto Rico. Warning: One or more of those drinks can kill you. 151 Rum can burn and damage your internal organs almost like battery acid would. It depends on the person. But I would not do drink it if offered. If you are going to do it, try with a spoon first. Then post the results...
Kyle, you da man.
Rum is ok, but I prefer a good Scotch myself.
Reads like a recipe for Picked Idiots to me. I like really a good rum but a mixture like this would kill the distinctive flavors.
Why is Michael such a f@660t?
I'm not sure about the mixture killing distinctive flavors, but am pretty sure it would kill a few brain cells...
Redrum......Here's Johnny !
I appreciate this comment.
If you haven't yet, read the book, it's better.
Sorry, no matter how you dress it up alcohol just isn't that interesting. Doesn't matter how many varieties of rum you include, what you flavor it with, and what high-schoolish ten year old "zombie" pictures you draw associated with a drink. The experience is still just blood alcohol level over time. Get over it. Smoke pot if you want an interesting and varied experience, in which it actually matters what type you choose, etc.
BLASTFAMY!!!! alcohol over pot any day... Please refrain from making negative comments toward my precious RUM.
The alcohol has clearly affected your ability to spell and use the shift key correctly. The correct spelling is blasphemy and you look like an idiot using a word you don't even know how to spell correctly.
Damn Sean.. take it easy there tiger. He doesn't need to spell correctly to get his opinion in and I think we understand what he's saying.
jeez Frank, way to suck all the fun out of both alcohol AND pot for me. Guess I'll have to switch to crack now...I've heard New Jersey has a delightful varietal, with a heady high and subtle bouquet of baking soda.
Your comment is rather uninteresting as well. Would you like company while you watch reruns of oprah?
You certainly are an entertaining litte pri ck, if nothing else. Oprah rocks da house, beotch!
Gawd, you find THIS entertaining? I even hate myself. I haven't been laid in fourteen years.
Frank – by the same logic, I guess it doesn't matter to you what you eat, since it all breaks down into it's constituent parts in your stomach anyway, and results in the increase of blood sugar levels, spreading of nutrients into your system, and the sating of feelings of hunger.
So, why not just put your steak dinner with mash into a blender, and drink it through a straw? The same difference, right?
no you get tastes in eating a steak. hence it's different than mcdonalds. he's saying the reason people like to drink hard liquor is to raise their blood alcohol level which makes them feel good. i also don't see a reason to drinking. he may be right about pot never tried it.
Love pot. Try enjoying it like a nice glass of wine rather than binge drinking.
It might be tart. I've never had this particular beverage. I'd be willing to give it a go though.
a Zombie glass is a non-tapered 12 to 14 ounce glass
Interesting that it says to shake it, and then float some high proof rum on top... About 33 years ago, I had a zombie that the bartender layered every rum so that each different color of rum was visible in the glass. The entire thing was strong, and tasted wonderful. Those were the days.
That sounds interesting – I'm going to research as we have some leftover rum from a big party. Thanks!!
We had one not too long ago. They used crushed ice and had it in a wider mouth glass similar to a martini glass. They shaped the ice mound and rum mixture in such a way that it looked like a brain in your glass. It was so strong I felt like I would get drunk sitting across the table from it.
That must be an old recipe. They spell Puerto Rican–Porto Rican
well yea it says its from 1941 so.... not exactly new huh
The only way to defeat a troll is to ignore him. They're just attention starved, insecure people trying to impress either themselves or someone else. Ignore them and know that they are imploding inside.
Way to ignore him. Any advice on how not to get hit by a train?
Ignore the train. If you ignore it, it does not exist.
Deep. So it all comes back to the spoon. However, there is no spoon. If there is no spoon, how do you know to ignore the spoon? Can there be a spoon and no spoon at the same time? There is and is not an (un)spoon.
This has been a public service announcement brought to you by evil smiley. No, he does not have a spoon... or does he?
Kind of hard to ignore them when you're writing about them. You know, giving them credit for their hard work and dedication. Go on, ignore the pink elephant. Ignore all your problems. They'll go away! Someday. I promise, they will.
Refer to the spoon. It will answer all of your questions regarding life, the universe, and everything. Just remember "42".
Apparently many of you have never heard the phrase "Don't feed the Trolls". Kyle = Troll win!
I like pizza, and lasagna.
Darn, I thought this was about Zombies. This would not be good to be drinking during a Zombie Apocalypse, and when is that going to happen? I've been waiting awhile and really want to cut off a head with my machete.
try the shrunken one below your waist... where you keep your little brain
People should drink during the zombie apocalypse. That way, when they turn into zombies, they're all too drunk to catch me.
At Mardi Gras, that's what comes out of the water fountains...
Kyle needs a fanpage somewhere.
The toilet is in the bathroom, down the hall and to the left.
Yay wizard guy so witty and clever! Edgy!
and a democrat.
I want to hang out with him sometime; I like his snark. (Or "her", who knows).
I wish I had a way of following Kyle's comments throughout CNN. While I disagree with all of it, you certainly keep things interesting.
You crack my up Kyle.. All of these people take themselves way to seriously lol.. Troll away..
Does'nt sound like much. I'll take two.
its bushes fault!
stop saying fail dot com
Quite possibly the only article CNN has ever published worth reading.
Keep trying, Sport. Maybe you'll write something worth reading some day, too.
I hate sports.
Wow, what an article. And that's not even how to make a Zombie.
This recipe is older than you are, hero. It is more relevant than your existence.
I'll admit that the recipe is older than I am, but not older than my father is. :)
National rum day, whatever. I have a National rum day everyday, rum and orange juice on the rocks. I don't know if it has a name but I like it.
It's called alcoholism and get a job.
You JUST commented above and said that this was the best article CNN ever had worth reading... I believe you have the problem, sir.
He's trolling, you dolts.
Way to fall for it.
Porto Rico is a wonderful island.
so is Puerto Rico, once you get out of San Juan
No it's not. It's full of mexicans.
Well at least you won't be there. Were you beaten as a child, or what exactly is your problem?
Are you serious? oh you must be from either Vermont or Tennessee
Funny, I thought that Puerto Rico is full of Puerto Ricans.
Tea Party geography again, huh?
None of you nimrods read the comment I responded to apparently. Here, I'll quote it for you!
"Porto Rico is a wonderful island."
Any of you heroes know where I can find "Porto Rico?" Anyone? Who was the moron that mentioned geography? Care to give us all a lesson?
I'm so glad I'm me, and not you.
Uhhhh, unless my math skills have failed me, this is just 3 ounces of rum and 1/2 ounce of brandy...with dash of 151 for some kick. So what? Drink 4 shots of anything and the effect is pretty much the same.
Don't be a pessimist Rod. CNN for the first time ever has published an article that isn't politically spun toward making sure the christgod obama is glorified, and you're whining about it.
I don't drink tea. I'm not from san fransisco.
there is 1/2 ounce of pineapple juice and the juice of 1 large lime as well as the rum.
Your math skills haven't failed you. BUT, the effect on me would be minimal. CNS depressants don't work well on me.
as much as I dislike the word/phrase "whatever"...
Nah, I think it's really cool, based purely on historic interest.
1: Back in 1941, zombies were talked about.
2: Back in 1941, SERIOUSLY HEAVY strength drinks were "cool".
but.... zombies aren't real.... o_O?
I vaguely remember having one once - you could see the fumes coming off of it – LOL !
that's basically 4 jiggers of rum and 2 jiggers of other. a Hurricaine with less other. I survived 5 Hurricaines in Nola one evening, but the next day was a lost cause. so it can be done.
You're a moron and a racist.
That was uncalled for.
Jigger. It is a measure of fluid volume commonly used in mixology. It is usually 1 1/2 ounces.
hahahaha I LOVE THIS GUY!! He's right on the money.
Not grapefruit juice? I trust the Bum: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/28/dining/281trex.html
Ahhh, but since it's from before 1968 (when Romero released "Dawn of the Dead"), it's more likely named for the magic/voudoo based zombie, a slow creature under the command of a wicked sorceror or voudoo priest. No brains eaters here, but a stolen soul and revived corpse with no thoughts of their own…
You must be a world of warcraft player. Tell me, have you lost your children to the courts for neglect?
Could be that they read.
I'm gonna kick your ass and then have Cartman sit his fat ass on your face till you STFU !
You are spending a great deal of time commenting on this story and putting people down. You appear to be a person greatly lacking in self esteem...very sad.
Kyle go die in a car fire
To folks like Kyle, literacy is an evil thing. Only the tea party manual (one page, one word, OBEY) and the bible are permitted.
Too bad, Kyle. I can out think you, out read you, out shoot you and that would be on my WORST day.
Go back to chilling on your twinkie encrusted sofa, where you belong.
hello Mr. Troll-ey! I just want to say that I am a World of Warcraft player...and a Diablo player (waiting for Diablo III!). Guess what i am a wonderful Mother to four beautiful kids. No neglect here. I only play after the kdis go to bed. :-) Get a life..contrary to popular belief WOW players have a life outside of Gaming too!
Tea party? I'm not a republican. Sorry to ruin your assumption and your day.
Out-think me? lol, see above. Out-read me? Well, you seem to know a lot about this alleged tea party manual I've never heard of, so I'll give you that. I hope you enjoy it! Out-shoot me? Oh lordy. An internet GANGSTER, shortly named WIZARD. You have me shaking in my tighty whities!
Twinkie -encrusted sofa. Hmmmmmm, that is a lovely portrayal of my home life, isn't it? I mean, that's what you hope for. You are obviously irritated with me. VERY OBVIOUSLY : ) The truth is WIZARD, your assumptions are completely incorrect. Unfortunately for you, everyone knows it. You try to appear educated. You try to attack my political interests, and believe me, I have none. But, you are a mind cripple. You have absolutely no ability to hurt my feelings, get under my skin, etc.
You might want to quit now while you think you're ahead, because I assure you, you never will be : D
Bye bye little fella!
Hey Mil, ignore this greasy little fuk. Obviously Kyles gene pool has stagnated into a festering cesspool.
To quote Hawkeye Pierce, "I'll have a zombie. And keep bringing them until I become one."
I like it!!! The only worthwhile comment out of the whole bunch.
Your comment is lackluster and seems forced. It's as though you were painfully aware that you had nothing original to speak of and felt the need to ride the coat tails of another man's glory. You can never be a man. You should instead, be in the kitchen. How on earth did you ever manage to figure out how to use a computer? What man let you have this freedom? It disgusts me.
Wow, angry and bitter much? Well, I know just the thing. There's immediate seating in the STFU cafe. Grab yourself a seat for an hour or ten.
I would sincerely HOPE that no man is NAMED Bonnie! Bonnie is a woman's name, not a man's name, Kyle.
That you first start off with "ride the coat tails of another man's glory", then continue on with "You can never be a man", THEN ask "What man let you have this freedom" tells me that you are terribly gender confused.
If you ask, your boyfriend, Lance, will most certainly explain the facts of life to you, Kyle.
It's not terribly complicated at all, you should be able to understand in 7-8 years or so.
Wizard. lol. Cute name for an internet gangster.
It seems to me you're the one who is confused. I never said Bonnie was a man. Your reading comprehension skills are horrific at best. I take back what I said about you being able to "out-read" me in your previous dimwit attack. My my, what a master wordmansmith you are.
You use a lot of commas in places they don't belong, by the way.
For you truth @ kyle.... I don't respond to "STFU." I stopped using AOL about 10 years ago. I see you're still an avid hardcore member.
