Zombie cocktail
The Zombie cocktail gets it's name from its high alchohol content, – it contains three types of rum, triple sec, all complimented by a mixture of fruit juices. 
The Zombie cocktail first appeared in late 1934, invented by Donn Beach (formerly Ernest Raymond Beaumont-Gannt) of Hollywood's Don the Beachcomber restaurant, and the customer it was designed for complained he felt like a zombie after consuming it!
