Bring 5 of Your Favorite Sci-Fi Drinks to Life This Halloween With These Recipes

 

No matter what species or planet you call your own (or dress up as this Halloween), you can’t get through a dystopian society without some serious alcohol. From the Twelve Colonies to Galifrey, these drinks really take the edge off kicking ass and taking names.

 

Firefly – Mudder’s Milk

The idea of Jayne Cobb being a hero might not sit right with you, but this concoction from one of the more memorable Firefly episodes… well, it might not sit right either.

Meant to serve as a meal replacement and a temporary escape from a hard-knock life, this cocktail better suits a rough Tuesday than a party.

  • 2-3 Shots of Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Banana
  • 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Oatmeal
  • Honey and Cinnamon to taste
  • Ice

Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend until consistency is smooth.

 

Doctor Who – The Master

If you’re feeling particularly villainous, this cocktail version of the Doctor’s oldest frenemy is charismatic and deceitfully sweet. Watch the intake or, the next day, you’ll hear the drumming too.

  • 1 oz. Dark Rum
  • 1 oz. Crème de Cacao
  • 1-2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 4 oz. Coca-Cola

Combine the rum, liqueur, and bitters in a shaker over ice. Pour into a glass and top with cola.

Although you can’t find all the ingredients for this cocktail on Earth, a pervasive death wish hasn’t stopped us from trying. Proceed with caution.

  • ½ oz gin
  • ½ oz light rum
  • ½ oz vodka
  • ½ oz tequila
  • 1 oz creme de menthe liqueur
  • 1 oz curacao liqueur
  • 1 oz Galliano
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 olive

Combine all the booze and ice in a blender. Cover, and blend until slushy. Pour into a glass and garnish with an olive. Preemptively call an ambulance.

This prison-born elixir might not be the classiest drink, but when you’re running from hostile Cylons, you’re not too picky. So say we all!

  • 6 oz Midori
  • 4 oz Blue Curacao
  • 2 oz lime juice
  • ½ cup of ice

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend. Optional: garnish with a stemmed cherry.

The Federation’s version of absinthe, Romulan Ale is known as an instant drunk. There’s a reason it’s illegal.

  • 375 ml Vodka
  • 375 ml Blue Curacao
  • 375 ml Everclear

Combine ingredients in a 1.25 liter bottle. Chill in freezer for two hours. Serve in shot glasses.

From Duff Beer to Butterbeer, a Comprehensive Illustration of Fictional Brews [Infographic]

fictional-brews

If you’re a fan of fictional alcoholic beverages from years back (nostalgia alert), here’s a comprehensive illustration of “Fantastical Fictive Beers.” The poster features everything from Homer’s go-to Duff Beer to Family Guy’s Pawtucket Pat to the famous Alamo brew Hank Hill is seen sporting in Arlen, Texas. Pretty much any drink from a fictional movie, sitcom, or TV show you can think of, it’s on here.

Beer Group 1

Probably one of the best things about the graphic is that it delves deep into our childhoods. They’ve got  the late-great Mission Hill’s Gruber Hof, Mudder’s Milk from the Jaynestown episode of Firefly and even Samuel Jackson from a sketch during the Chappelle’s Show era.

And then you have the more recently popular drinks like (Spoiler Alert) late Hank Schrader’s Schraderbrau and the wizarding world’s Butterbeer. The amount of pop culture research and design that went into this graphic is absolutely ridiculous and most definitely appreciated by yours truly.

Of course, I can’t mention Samuel Jackson Beer without this beautiful NSFW clip.
