Barkeep Brian Miller’s traveling tiki show recently set up shop at Mother’s Ruin where, every Monday night, he presents a menu of classic tropical drinks. Get to know the Polynesian canon’s most persistent icon, the lethal, rum-soaked Zombie, via Miller’s $16 flight, which compares tiki pioneer Don the Beachcomber’s 1934 recipe with its 1950 and 1956 iterations. You’ll get three two-ounce pours of each version, presented on a wooden plank—and Miller will be on hand to walk you through the drink’s evolution, from the three-rum original through its mid-century upgrowth, spiked with Maraschino liqueur and passion-fruit syrup.
