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:
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:
We boldly go where (maybe) no podcast has gone before by reviewing the Star Trek movie franchise, starting with 1979’s The Motion Picture. The movie lived up to that exciting title. On to the drinks!
Shot: V’Ger, I guess the antagonist of the movie? Sorta?
1/2oz each vodka and elderflower liqueur
Cocktail: Café 1701, something to keep viewers awake during the multiple scenes of nothing happening.
In an Irish coffee glass: 1.5oz blended Scotch; fill with hot coffee
Man, this was a rough way to start a franchise, but I’ve got some inside information that it gets MUCH better from here! Check out all our thoughts on the movie, drinks, and a whole lot more on podcast 142, here:
