Most folks want their business to grow, not shrink… but not Trader Sam. Sam has been navigating the waters of Walt Disney’s famous Jungle Cruise attraction for years and his offer of “two heads for one of yours” still stands. This tiki mug, a depiction of one of Sam’s shrunken heads, is the perfect vessel for one of the cocktail world’s strongest drinks- the Zombie. Originally crafted by Don the Beachcomber, the Zombie’s potency was said to turn patrons into “the walking dead.” For this reason, the Zombie is typically limited to two drinks per person. This iteration of the classic zombie (or “shrunken head”, as the case may be) features a raised eyebrow and stitching over the eyelids and mouth.

    Lovely sculpting on this mug, and the red glaze on it really makes the features pop, I would say more than any of the other iterations of this mug. This colorway is exclusive to the Trader Sam’s in the Polynesian Hotel at Walt Disney World. Holds more than you would expect at first glance. My one gripe with this mug, and a couple of the mugs at Trader Sam’s in general, the texture has a weird soft grit to it that’s like a matte finish or an extremely fine-grade sandpaper. It definitely fades a bit as the mug gets cold, but for whatever reason it’s a bit uncomfortable to touch for me at first. Also, is it just me, or does anyone else see the Hatbox Ghost’s face on this guy?
