running, bomb tech

At least I got it written down before passing out or anything.

azurelunatic: I made myself my own version of a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster! With a few substitutions.

Except for Ol' Janx Spirit, i used Captain Morgan. And for the water from the seas, limeade. Sparkling.
I didn't have any gin, much less mega-gin, but vodka is pretty close.
The Fallian marsh gas, to properly reproduce as I suspect intended, would have required a) a bong and b) me to actually smoke that stuff. So I sort of left that one out.
Hypermint extract? Try 90 proof peppermint schanpps. Suntiger teeth? Don't got. Atomic fireball? Got.
Zamphour was the most elusive. I added kosher salt and said "eh". I had an olive.
No slice of lemon to stick on the side of the glass,a las.
Ain't bad.
Would improve if iced. Alas, I have nooooo ice.

Gold brick wrapped in a slice of lemon.

hcolleen and I wound up chatting last night. I was very drunk (for me) and she posted a chat log.

Now that was some serious intoxication there. I did get a photo of the ingredients lined up on the unreliable shelf, and I got a photo of the drink. When I was done mixing it, the big red plastic cup was a little over half full. 32 oz plastic stadium cup.

The drink was not bad, though it tasted very thickly of alcohol. It was bitter, spicy, and sour, but all the flavors worked reasonably well together. I drank it slowly because I'm very not used to alcohol and I don't really like the taste. But the rest of it was an evolution in citrus and cinnamon. I should try it with sparkling lemonade next time, if there is a next time, and ice, and gin. With a slice of lemon stuck on the side of the glass.

I don't have a hangover, because I was smart with my water. I think I killed most of a 64oz bottle of water along with the drink. Which tells you how much water I do drink anyway, and also says that I don't like dehydration, especially not from alcohol. So I'm not having the full Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster experience, because I'm not feeling mugged the morning after, but ... I can do without that bit!
