Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster Recipe

Jonah Goldberg is one of the few reasons I check into the Corner semi-regularly. The other day, he posted a cool-looking cocktail recipe in the process of pointing to this twisted movie.

The recipe called to mind the recipe for a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster (the effect of drinking of which is like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick) that I prototyped back in college. First, the original recipe, as defined by Douglas Adams in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

I translated that as follows:

(The approximate ratios in a large blender were: 4 rum : 1 everclear : 1 Schnapps).

A so-called friend of mine has some super-8 film footage of the aftermath (this was pre-miniDV handicam days, people). Oh, yeah, and I managed to get a decent education, too.

Very nice, very nice. Afraid that it's useless by itself, you know. Where is the recipe for the antidote?

Blue food colouring is the only mistake... try Blue Curacao then it would be perfect.
