|As blue as an Andorian's blood|
I thought I knew these shows inside and out until Mr. Bottle recently received the Blu-ray box set for Christmas. Holy wow, the first season was really slow, choppy, and I’ve found them to be the perfect cure for sleeplessness. That said, nothing beats William Shatner’s dramatic rendition of Captain Kirk. I … must … re … examine … his … performance … in …T.J. … Hooker!
Thinking about Kirk, I imagine his reaction after drinking the Galactic Ale, a shooter combining vodka, blue Curaçao, lime juice, and black raspberry liqueur. I’m sure he would say “This is very blue, tasty and lightly fruity with a slight raspberry flavor. Not a big alcohol taste, so that’s a plus. Now Spock, go mind-meld the bad guy, Dr. McCoy, check my vitals, and Yeoman Janice or Green Lady, kiss me now!!”
|Khaaan you bring me another one?|
To sum it all up, I’m pretty sure you’ll live long and prosper after consuming large quantities of this delicious blue libation.
