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.

 

Battlestar Galactica – Ambrosia

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.

Baker Decorates Each Cookie by Hand, Resulting in Edible Masterpieces

Reddit-Cookie-Turtles

Whenever I see someone create art on a canvas of baked goods, I have to take a second and admire it. It’s actually incredibly difficult to draw something on a cake or a cookie, whether it’s simply lettering or a picture of Batman. At least from my experience. That being said, a baker recently posted some of her beautiful cookie designs on Reddit.

What’s special about them is that she goes out of her way to freehand each drawing from scratch, instead of retracing a previous piece of work. She even includes a few photos detailing her tedious process of sketching to icing each cookie.

Take a look below at some of the most gorgeous cookie art I’ve even seen.

Star Trek Pancakes, So You Can Wake Up to Spock Drizzled in Syrup

Or a panKirk. Or a… panKov. Or… an… Uhura… flapjack. You get the point. These are pancakes. And they look like the original Star Trek characters. No Piccakes (… panCards? Other pancake + Picard puns?) to be found here, but the rest of the cast, from McCoy, right on down to Sulu, salutes you in starchy, maple-syruped form. Trekkies have illustrator/pancake artist Nathan Shields to thank for this.

Yes, that’s right. A pancake artist. What, did you not know that was a thing? You’re welcome.
