Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster
potent drink invented by Zaphod
Beeblebrox. The effects have been likened to having your brains smashed
out with a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.
There are many voluntary organizations which will help to rehabilitate you
after you've had one.
The Guide has instructions for mixing a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster yourself:
- Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol' Janx Spirit.
- Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus
- Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture
(it must be properly iced or the benzine is lost).
- Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it,
in memory of all those happy Hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes
- Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin
Hypermint extract, redolent of all the heady odours of the dark Qualactin
Zones, subtle sweet and mystic.
- Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch it dissolve,
spreading the fires of the Algolian Suns deep into the heart of the drink.
- Sprinkle Zamphuor.
- Add an olive.
- Drink ... but ... very carefully ...
