“Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” Drinks

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:

“Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” Drinks

We’re back to the Star Trek franchise with the second film, one which many consider the best of the series, and our accompanying drinks.

Shot: Romulan Ale, a gift to Kirk from Bones on his birthday, and it’s blue, so…

1/2oz each white rum and blue curaçao

Cocktail: Space Slug, after the mind control worms Khan uses.

In a blender combine 2oz dark rum, 3oz pineapple juice, 1oz coconut cream. Blend with 1 cup ice. Pour into Margarita glass and garnish with a gummy worm.

A great movie and a decent couple of drinks- hopefully we haven’t peaked already. Check out our complete thoughts on both and a draft of movies adapted from tv, all on podcast 144, here:
