#Bookcook The Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster and Smash a Gold Brick Into Your Face

Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster [HD]

According to The Guide, this is the best drink in existence.
Its effects are similar to “having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick.”

According to fan lore and the website Hitchhikers Fandom the ingredients are as follows:

Mixing Instructions

I checked the pantry and it seems I am out of Fallian Marsh Gas. However, I have read a little research about a similar recipe of easy-to-find ingredients at this end of the backwaters galaxy. According to, one can make a similar approximation of the “gold brick smashing into the head effect” with a few substitutes.

1 part Everclear (or any other strong grain alcohol such as Bourbon, Moonshine, or Vodka)
1 part Bitter Lemon (or plain Tonic Water)
1 part Bombay Sapphire Gin (or other gin)
1 part Yukon Jack Perma-Frost Schnapps (or other mint schnapps, or white crème de menthe)
Enough blue food coloring to make the mixture a very light sky blue
Sugar cubes
Cinnamon extract
Yellow food coloring (optional)
Angostura Bitters



“Mix the first five ingredients and chill. Then, take a sugar cube and let it absorb 1 milliliter of cinnamon extract and 1 drop of yellow food coloring (optional). Place three ice cubes in a glass and pour the chilled liquid mixture over these. Drop in the sugar cube and stir to dissolve, or just let it sit (if food coloring is used, often the sugar cube is just left to sit, to create a layering effect with the color). Sprinkle the Angostura Bitters in the drink, and add an olive. Drink, but very carefully.
