Magic ZOMBIE! Glass

$22,542

WHAT IS THE MAGIC ZOMBIE! GLASS?

It's a mystical drinking vessel that'll turn your regular tiki cocktail into a potent voodoo potion.   Its dark powers will cause the dead to appear whenever a cold beverage is poured into it!   

The glass is inspired by Donn Beach, the father of tiki culture and inventor of the Zombie cocktail.  However, Donn didn't serve his Zombie in a tiki mug - instead he presented his so-called "mender of broken dreams" in a tall, chimney-style glass.

The Magic ZOMBIE! Glass is an authentic replica of Donn's original glassware, and features artwork by Nik Poliwko with colors by Sveta Shubina.  The glass also includes Donn's 1934 Zombie recipe (courtesy of Jeff "Beachbum" Berry, Sippin'  Safari).  

WHO'S THE MAGIC ZOMBIE! GLASS FOR?

Whether you're a tikiphile, horror hound, lowbrow art collector, or just an aspiring weekend witch doctor, this glass is for everyone!

Of course, please make sure you're of age to imbibe one of Donn's "rhum rhapsodies" or dabble in the art of "necromixology."

SPECIAL THANKS

This project would not have been possible without the hard work of several individuals: Nik Poliwko, Sveta Shubina, Matt Durston, Alan De Herrera, Greg Cahill, Kayci Nosal, and Death Valley Beach Club for providing our theme music "Donn of the Dead."

Also, thanks to the fine folks at False Idol in San Diego.  They make a killer Zombie. 

Risks and challenges

After nearly a year of work, the Magic ZOMBIE! Glass has been fully developed and tested. We're all set to head into production on as many glasses as necessary. The only thing that would stop this project from going ahead is if it's not funded. Otherwise, we're excited to follow in Donn Beach's footsteps and add a bit of extra mystery and excitement to your future neighborhood luaus and backyard barbeques.
