Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse #7: Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster

Those of you who are well travelled may have already come across this quite legendary tipple – if not by direct experience then by perusal of the right kind of a guide book. We’ll quote you direct from it – “…the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, the effect of which is like having your brains smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.”
(Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy )

We won’t argue with the master so here’s a recipe for it – feel free to double, triple or quadruple the measures though it’s highly likely you won’t even be able to pronounce this one once you’ve drunk it… and if nothing else, this will take your mind off whatever nasties are lurching outside the house…

Ingredients (Serves 1)

1 tablespoon gin
1 tablespoon light rum
1 tablespoon vodka
1 tablespoon tequila
2 tablespoons creme de menthe liqueur
2 tablespoons Galliano
1 scoop ice cubes
1 slice lemon

Combine the gin, rum, vodka, tequila, creme de menthe, Galliano and ice in the container of a blender. Cover, and blend until slushy. (If the minions haven’t got the power working, a plastic bag and a hammer work almost as well.) Pour into a glass and garnish with a slice of lemon.
