Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters

The infamous drink invented by the fictional character Zaphod Beeblebrox in the series “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. This drink was brought into the real world by Burk Plekol, world renowned bartender of the stars.

No one but the creator is really sure what he puts in it, but he is known to serve it up whenever someone asks for the strongest drink in the house. If pushed for more information he simply quotes the recipe given in the novel:

“Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol’ Janx Spirit.

Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V

Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzene is lost).

Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it (in memory of all those happy Hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia).

Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin Hypermint extract, redolent of all the heady odours of the dark Qualactin Zones.

Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian suns deep into the heart of the drink.

Sprinkle Zamphour.

Add an olive.

Drink…but very carefully."
