>I thought I’d share a new beverage recipe I found in my New York Bartender’s Guide. It’s called a Little Devil:
4 parts (2 oz.) gin
3 parts (1.5 oz.) light rum
2 parts (1 oz.) triple sec
2 parts (1 oz.) fresh lemon juice
Combine all ingredients with cracked ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake well and strain into chilled cocktail (martini) glass.
My new goal is to try one new drink recipe a week. I’ll probably be an alcholic by the end of the year, but my writing get better, too.
>Hi my name is Nolff and I’m an alcoholic.
That one sounds dangerous. I’ll find out how much tommorow.
>I prefer the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster myself:
1) Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol’ Janx Spirit.
2) Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V.
3) Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzene is lost).
4) Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it.
5) Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qalactin Hypermint extract.
6) Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger.
8)Add an olive.
9)Drink . . . but . . . very carefully .
Or, if you can’t get a bottle of that ol’ Janx Spirit, here’s an earthly version:
1 oz. EverClear
4 oz. Bombay Sapphire or Jeremiah Weed
4 oz. Cold Wild Turkey
2 oz. Tequila
5 oz. Rum
1 worm from bottle of Mezcal
2 oz. Gatorade
This makes one approximately 18 ounce Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. The reason this drink seems so large is that Zaphod Beeblebrox has two heads, so when he created it, it came out to 9 ounces per head, so both were happy.
Before drinking, eat one olive to create a sweetness in it which is not there.
>If it’s possible to get drunk just by reading about drinks, I think I’m there…
>Sure. Rub it in.
Anyhoo, sounds a lot better than a “Dead Mexican Cow.”
>Oh, and lest anyone think I’m pulling a Coulter–
The Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster is the invention of the late, lamented Douglas Adams, written about in at least two of the five books of his trilogy: “The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy.”
The earthly version was concoted by Lloyd T. Rich, whom, as I recall, wished he was both late and lamented after drinking it.

“It is said that the effect of a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.”
>The meetings are a blast! sometimes the coffee sucks–but the stories…
>That drink had a kick to it. One and I was done for the evening.
Anything with Everclear and tequila might kill me.
