From Klingon Ale to Mudder's Milk you can taste the future or just serve them at your next costume party.
Some I've tried and some I haven't. So, don't blame me if they're nasty.
|Star Trek: The Next Generation Work (Michael Dorn) Klingons Drinking Blood Wine|
Bloodwine is a popular alcoholic beverage among the Klingons, usually served warm. Klingon foods and beverages are serious business, and in the Star Trek universe this is no exception. On the show bloodwine is highly intoxicating. Twice as potent as whiskey. Thankfully, this drink is very different. There's no blood in this recipe, but it's really good stuff. Very sweet, with a kick from the tabasco and spiced rum.
- 1 oz. Rum, spiced (Captain Morgan's)
- 1 oz. Tequila, gold (Jose Cuervo Especial)
- Fill with Cranberry Juice
- 1 dash Grenadine
- 2 dashes Tabasco Sauce
- Add tabasco sauce to an ice-filled beer mug or glass.
- Pour in the tequila, rum and grenadine, and fill with cranberry juice.
- Shake twice and serve.
2. Slurm by The Baltimore ChopMade famous by Futurama
|Futurama - Bender and Fry drinking Slurm|
Good news everyone! "It's Highly Addictive!" Almost. First seen on the animated show Futurama the drink is incredibly popular and actually the secretion of a giant worm. This drink recipe is definitely not addictive. In fact, its pretty gross. Too sweet and the mix of pineapple juice and schnapps are an...interesting choice. Do yourself a favor and pour it on ice and double up on the pineapple juice. Mix in a little lime jello to get the right consistency.
- 2 oz. light rum
- 1 oz. sour apple schnapps
- 2 oz. pineapple juice
- 3 oz. 7 up.
- Pour all the ingredients into a large glass and stir

Romulan ale was a highly intoxicating alcoholic beverage of Romulan origin. I bought some when I visited the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas. Illegal in the Federation you can mix up some and drink it now.

Don't Panic! Invented by Zaphod Beeblebrox, in the Douglas Adams' novel The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The effect of a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is described as having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon, wrapped 'round a large gold brick. It has also been described in the novel as the alcoholic equivalent to a mugging; expensive and bad for the head. This recipe should be a little less potent.
