If you are familiar with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, then you have surely wondered what a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster might taste like.
The Guide touts that the potent beverage, invented by the ex-President of the Universe Zaphod Beeblebrox, is widely considered to be the “Best Drink in Existence” and its effects are similar “to having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.” Sounds like a winner to me.
If you need a little guidance on makin’ the drink, Mitch Hutts from The Geek & Sundry Vlog Critical Hit Cocktails can walk you through the steps in his how-to video.
Check out the video and the recipe after the break…
.5 oz Bourbon
.75 oz Gin
1 oz Sour Apple Pucker
.5 oz Blue Curacao
1 oz Lemon Juice
.5 oz Simple Syrup
1 Lemon Twist
Directions: Mix all ingredients together with ice and shake. Strain into a cocktail glass and squeeze your lemon into the mix, then add as a garnish. Serve and enjoy that lemony golden brick to the head.
