This week we found out (by accident) the best way to watch Star Trek III is right after II; let’s see how the drinks stack up to this underappreciated entry in the franchise.
Shot: Bird of Prey, after the Klingon warship our plucky crew face and end up commandeering.
2/3oz vodka, 1/3oz melon liqueur
Cocktail: Spock Corpse Reviver– part inside joke from our Wrath of Khan episode, part classic cocktail, all blue.
1oz each gin, blue curaçao, lillet blanc, lemon juice; 3 drops absinthe. Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Don’t sleep on Search for Spock– it’s a great accompaniment to Khan and nicely sets up the next movie, if memory serves. And the drinks weren’t half bad either. Check out all our thoughts on both and much more on podcast 145, here:
