Fans of Douglas Adams and his series, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, know that there’s only one real cocktail for the savvy interstellar vagabond: The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. According to the canon, the drink was created by former President of the Galaxy, Zaphod Beeblebrox, and is widely considered to be the Best Drink In Existence.
From The Restaurant at the End of the Universe: “Its effects are similar to “having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.”
When fiddling with a cocktail recipe, that’s a tall order to fill, but we focused on the lemony and minty aspects – something you’d enjoy on a spaceship with an Improbability Drive, and came up with this shooter:
- 1 oz. sweet and sour mix
- ½ oz. Blue Curacao
- ½ oz. Crème de Menthe
It looks hoopy, tastes froody, and will surely knock you on your towel. Cheers!
