Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster

From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

I did you all a favor and found this cocktail somewhere else besides my puny human brain. It probably helps to have two heads when inventing cocktails... The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster was invented by Zaphod Beeblebrox, the flamboyant two-headed quasi-antagonist of Douglas Adam's brilliantly funny book(s), Hitchhiker's Guide. It has been described as the alcoholic equivalent to a mugging; expensive and bad for the head. Or heads. The effect is said to be like "having your brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick." Most of the ingredients for the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster don't exist on Earth, and Douglas Adams himownself has stated that there are a number of environmental and weapons treaties (and laws of physics) which prevent the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster from being mixed on Earth. But DON'T PANIC! There are a few different illegal Earth versions floating around out there in cyberspace that have pretty much the same effect. I chose the one that seemed to be mostly harmless. Consult your Guide for the rehabilitation organizations and programs available to you following consumption.


1 part Everclear (or any other strong grain alcohol such as Bourbon, Moonshine, or Vodka)

1 part Bitter Lemon (or plain Tonic Water)

1 part Bombay Sapphire Gin (or other gin)

1 part Yukon Jack Perma-Frost Schnapps (or other mint schnapps, or white crème de menthe)

Enough blue food coloring to make the mixture a very light sky blue

Sugar cubes

Cinnamon extract

Yellow food coloring (optional)

Angostura Bitters


Mix the first five ingredients and chill. Then, take a sugar cube and let it absorb 1 milliliter of cinnamon extract and 1 drop of yellow food coloring (optional). Place three ice cubes in a glass and pour the chilled liquid mixture over these. Drop in the sugar cube and stir to dissolve, or just let it sit (if food coloring is used, often the sugar cube is just left to sit, to create a layering effect with the color). Sprinkle the Angostura Bitters in the drink, and add an olive. Drink, but very carefully.
