Sci-fi drinks for New Year’s, anyone?

If you’re a sci-fi fan, you might have noticed that aliens, humans and hybrids sometimes imbibe intriguing, intergalactic drinks.

New Scientist’s Rowan Hooper recently looked at some of the specialities found in popular science fiction movies, such as “Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster,” from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy described as “the best drink in existence.”

Think of the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, created by Douglas Adams in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and described as the best drink in existence. No matter that drinking it is said to be “like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick”, I want to try it. Same with the intoxicating ambrosia enjoyed by the ragtag fleet of surviving humans in Battlestar Galactica.
