'Star Trek' themed drinks for the show's 50th anniversary

I foreshadowed today's post when I concluded Alignment charts for the 50th anniversary of 'Star Trek' by writing "Next up, drink recipes.  Once again, Star Wars can't have all the fun!"  I begin with a recreation of two classic drinks from the series with ROMULAN ALE & KLINGON BLOOD WINE from Nicko's Kitchen.


ROMULAN ALE makes 4 drinks
375 ml Rum
375 ml Vodka
375 ml Blue Curacao liqueur

KLINGON BLOOD WINE makes 2 drinks
1 oz Tequila
1 oz Spiced rum
1 dash grenadine syrup
2 dashes Tabasco sauce
1 cup cranberry juice
Almost Nerdy's Andorian Ale recipe is similar to the Romulan Ale, 2 oz. Raspberry vodka and 1 oz. Blue Curacao.  If Captain Jack Sparrow drank this after sampling the Romulan Ale, he might ask, "but why is all the rum gone?"

Follow over the jump for more recipes.

Aggressive Comix brings its viewers Captain Kirk - Secret of the Booze.

Captain Kirk

1 shot Amaretto
1 shot Malibu
1.5 shots Milk
Chocolate Syrup (as much as you would add to a glass of Chocolate Milk)

Add all 4 ingredients into glass and mix. Serve in low ball glass no ice in low ball glass. (Mix with ice BUT DO NOT SERVE with ice. Ice will dilute the flavor over time and makes the drink less enjoyable)
Continuing on, Geeks are Sexy has 10 Star Trek-Themed Cocktails to Get your Party Started presented as images.  A picture is worth 1000 drinks words.

Some of these drinks, such as the Harvey Mudd Slide, are also among those served at Quark's Bar at The Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas.  Click on the link to The Ugly Couch Show's page to read them.  There are too many for me to choose from to post here.

Finally, no drink recipe post of mine would be complete without a Tipsy Bartender video.  Since "Captain Kirk's Alien Sex on a Beach" was mentioned, I'll go with Alien Sex.

It's time for some ALIEN SEX!
