Created by Trader Vic's contemporary, Don the Beachcomber, this recipe was almost lost due to Don's intense secrecy. The amount of rum in it got it banned in many cities and was said to reduce you to one of the living dead, stumbling around grunting "Rummmm, RUUUMMMM!!!" Though I have never been driven to such a state, I highly recommend this drink, as long as you only have one.
