johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

how to destroy a zombie

above image courtesy of jeff berry - kick ass makeup by junkhauler

far be it from me to puu-puu someone's efforts to do a cool thing and not totally miss the mark; and i am supa glad that the supreme mixological kknowledge of beachbum berry is broadcasting to the teeming millions;

but i had to shudda a bit reading this week's drinks of summer article in the local yokel city paper;

and they did acknowledge that they fudged the recipe a bit... but ruby red grapefruit juice and bacardi instead of jamaican rum? survey says:


just for everyone's review, a proper (modern day) zombie is:

3/4 ounce lime juice

1 ounce white grapefruit juice

1/2 ounce cinnamon-infused sugar syrup (see note)

1/2 ounce bacardi 151 rum

1 ounce dark jamaican rum

sliced fruit and mint for garnish.

shake all ingredients well with ice cubes. strain into a highball glass filled with ice. garnish with fruit and a mint sprig.

yield: one drink.

note: cinnamon syrup from sonoma syrup company is sold at dean & deluca and whole foods. to make it, boil 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar and 2 cinnamon sticks pounded with the back of a knife; stir until sugar dissolves, remove from heat, let sit for 2 hours, then strain.

in fac', read this ny times article about the modern day prophet of exotic cocktails here.

And of course, that's without all the bloated flesh and nasty people-eating corpses. Which reminds me: Volune 98 of The Walking Dead graphic novel is out this week! Not nearly as good as Y: The Last Man but still entertaining.
