How to make a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster (on Earth)

We're missing more than a few ingredients on this planet to make the infamous cocktail from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy — unless someone has a reserve of Arcturan Mega-gin they're not telling us about — but this enterprising young man has concocted a recipe that may give Earthlings a semblance of the drink that tastes "like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon, wrapped 'round a large gold brick."


Personally, I might suggest adding 1 oz of Everclear to make sure the brick part is truly represented, but to each their own.

Mixing instructions:
