Five Cosmic Cocktails that are Out of this World!
July 4th is Independence Day in the US, and for no other reason than the fact that there is a film about aliens named after this day, we have created a list of the tastiest (sometimes incredibly potent) space-themed drinks! Whatever your opinion on Will Smith, he has done a great job of raising the profile of aliens around the world! So, this Independence Day, raise a glass in their honour and drink to those things outside of our earth that may or may not exist!
When aliens strike, they are sure to incite terror with gargle blasters, right? Show them your own Intergalactic Gargle Blaster and you’ll be fine – the aliens won’t be able to shoot straight after one or two of these! Made with triple sec, gin and southern comfort, the only relief comes in the form of sour mix and grenadine, which will make this drink taste like juice. It might be more dangerous than the blasters themselves!
If the last drink doesn’t finish them off, the Alien Brain Haemorrhage will do the trick! This tasty shot is made up of Sambuca, Baileys, Blue Curacao and a touch of grenadine to make for a shooter that will muddle your own brains, never mind the aliens! It will be worth the hangover though, because the smooth drink is delicious!
Once you have turned your aliens into drunken, tired alcoholics, you will need to get them back to space. Rocket Fuel is the perfect option. This powerful shot combines Sambuca and gin in a 25ml glass and is sure to put some fire in your own feet! This is not a drink for the lightweights – you need to be able to handle your alcohol to even attempt this one!
Imagine if Granny had accidentally wandered into the spaceship as you were filling it up? The Cosmic Granny cocktail would be a perfect tribute. Made up of Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge and gin, along with lime juice and pomegranate juice, this is a drink you’ll remember forever!
Hopefully, Granny would make it back to Earth, but she will probably have a weird aura about her. Moon Glow is a blend of black vodka, cranberry juice and soda. This cocktail tastes incredible but is slightly deceiving, so don’t drink too fast, the glow the next day is not pretty!
If only cocktails really had the power to save the world from alien invasion – we would all be heroes! In the meantime, these mouth-watering drinks should really be enjoyed with care, if only to prevent wasting the next day in the bed!
