6 Days of “Deep Thoughts”-Finale! Who Wants to make a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster!!??

Now for something completely different to finish off my 6 days of quotes!! This will be a quote from one of my favourite novels, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams


“Here’s what The Encycolpaedia Galactica has to say about alcohol. It says that alcohol is a colorless volatile liquid formed by the fermentationof sugars and also notes its intoxicating effect on certain carbon-based life forms.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy also mentions alcohol. It says that the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.

It says the effect of drinking a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is like having your brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a gold brick.

The Guide also tells you on which planets the best Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters are mixed, how much you can expect to pay for one and what voluntary organizations exist to help you rehabilitate afterwards.”

The Guide even tells you how to mix one yourself!

  • Take the juice from one bottle of Ol’ Janx Spirit.
  • Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V β€” 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.
  • Add an olive.
  • Drink… but… very carefully…

Obviously some of those things are going to be tough to find in their intergalactic forms… so this is as close as I could de-cypher in Earth Terms

  • Take the juice from a bottle of Southern Comfort (1oz)

  • Pour into it one measure of Sea Wynd Rum (1oz)- Oh, that Rum that tastes like Sea Water!

  • Allow three cubes of Gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced, so add a little water as liquor doesn’t freeze)

  • Allow 4oz of Club Soda to bubble through it

  • Over the Back of a spoon float a measure of green Creme de Menthe (1/2oz)

  • Drop in the a Sugar Cube that has been dipped in hot sauce. Watch it dissolve.

  • Sprinkle Lemon Juice

  • Add an olive

  • Drink….but.. very carefully…

And for those who are disappointed that I didn’t end with a “Deep Thought” by Jack Handey…. fear not.

“If you ever catch on fire, try to avoid seeing yourself in the mirror, because I bet that’s what REALLY throws you into a panic.”

    1. ….It is. It’s still staring at me from my table while I drink the cider that I switched to going “…you’re not going to WASTE me Nicole…are you?? All that alcohol in me… you can’t just ignore me!!” I drank a good portion of it! I wish I had regular Southern Comfort as opposed to the Pepper one. I think that would be better. But, I had to go with what was in my liquor cabinet! Lol!

      1. I can only imagine… If I was younger I probably would have chugged it down lol. Back in college I remember that my friends and I made the discovery that Southern comfort and root beer tasted like cotton candy… That was dangerous.

      2. I agree! Back in the day this definitely would have been gone! My poor old stomach can’t handle it now though! Lol! Or maybe it can and it’ll just take me the next 24 hrs to get through!!
        And Southern Comfort and Root Beer you say? I’ll have to keep that in mind for a book pairing!! (I’ll be sure to give you props!)

      1. I DID!! But, not all of it. Lol! I refuse to waste it though… It’s still sitting there… Staring at me… Taunting me… But, Douglas Adams did say to drink carefully! I’m just biding my time. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

  1. You made me laugh out loud (and feel slightly nauseated! I think I started tipping over the edge when the olive was added; I was feeling open-minded until then, and it went downhill from there!)

    1. Actually, without the olive (and maybe the hot sauce covered sugar cube) it would have been pretty tasty! I’ll have to try it with regular southern comfort though.. I only have the pepper kind and it wasn’t as good!

  2. Damn…. Remind me to come visit you at least once in my lifetime. Preferably at a time when I may not need my liver so much. πŸ˜‰

    1. YOU MUST!! I FEEL THE WORLD MAY BE DESTROYED BY A VOGON DESTRUCTOR FLEET IF YOU DON’T!!! (or if you do… It probably doesn’t matter) but, READ IT! (and make sure you bring your towel. NEVER FORGET YOUR TOWEL!) … This will all make sense to you when you read it. So, you BEST get on that!! πŸ‘πŸ‘
