Derrick and the guys may have a dispute on the definition of “funny”, but the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is definitely a drink people seek out after reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Have you read, and enjoyed, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? This cocktail is infamous for its randomness on ingredients and, because the author really defined it as something insane, the drink itself will always be made insanely because of it.

This fictional drink has no set defined ingredients, but Doug and Derrick defined their own recipe years ago and here it is, re-released and re-created for your viewing pleasure. Introducing the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster!

The CMC Banger Book:

Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster
– 1 1/2 oz. Moonshine
– 1/4 oz. Blue Curacao
– 1 1/2 oz. Gin
– 1 oz. Lemon Vodka
– 1/4 oz. Rumple Minze
– 2 Dashes Bitters
– Sugar Cube
– Top with Club Soda
– Garnish with an Olive

Here is the original recipe:
Take the juice from one bottle of Ol’ Janx Spirit.

Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V — Oh, that Santraginean seawater! Oh, those Santraginean fish!

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, subtle, sweet and mystic.

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 Zamphuor.
