Really Rummy Zombie

Mark T. McKee, 54, wealthy Airlines executive, once drank eight zombies to win a drinking contest with a Peruvian Consul and then hopped around the night club singing he was ‘a little prairie flower, growing wilder every hour,’ his wife testified in her divorce suit. Really Rummy Zombie cocktail has light, golden, dark and 151 rums in it to make it a very potent drink.
