I've had butterbeer. They sell it at Universal Orlando in the Harry Potter section.

It's really good and really sweet. And it will quickly make you sick if you drink too much of it.

Anyone comes near my beer with butter gets a shot in the 'nads.

Yuck!

GAT_00: Oh fark you, I was promised a raktajino recipe! I see no recipe.


How to Make Raktajino

Klingon Raktajino: Raktajino was identified as a Klingon Coffee in
several episodes, but the best example was from "Trials and
Tribble-ations". I do not have the official recipe, here try these
mixes. The first is actually Klah which was taken from the book "The
Dragonlover's Guide to PERN" based on the novels from Anne
McCaffery. The second was sent by .Ka'Diin Kasara of the KIDC.

Raktajino: Klah Version:
2 Tbs Sweet ground chocolate
1/2 cup dark coco
3/8 tsp Cinnamin
1 tsp Dark Instant Coffee Crystals Ground into powder
Pinch of nutmeg

Raktajino: House of Kasara blend:
1 1/2 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
6 Tbs. instant coffee
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Note: lightweight Terran friends may prefer a mix made
with 3 tablespoons of instant coffee.
Makes approximately 14 servings.

For both versions mix all ingredients together, and store in
airtight container.
To serve, use 3 teaspoons to 3/4 cup not-quite-boiling water. When
served, the drink should be thick, much like hot coco.

I'm guessing it's because liquid milk would dilute the intensity of the Klingon coffee.

Picard: Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

Kirk: Ale. Romulan. Illegal.

Advantage: Kirk.

Klingon blood wine is supposed to be twice as strong as whiskey but I don't know how that's scientifically possible. Must involve an inverse warp field channeled through the deflector dish.

Whiskey is only like 80 proof. Drink some 151, you're almost all the way there.

Right but pure alcohol is only 200 proof. But there might be some Klingon super-saturation involved.

Add blue food coloring to Everclear, make Romulan Ale.

You don't need any of the other stuff. It won't really be drinkable, though it'll have the kick of the fictional stuff.

So twice as strong as whiskey would be 160 proof. Everclear is stronger

Not actually a fictional drink but one time working at a convention we used the hotel glasses "somewhat chalice shaped' for coffee. We worried about them breaking from the heat so we wrapped them in duct tape. These were quickly acquired by the klingon contingent at the con.

Grapefruit juice according to the actor and he hated it.

I very likely still have some of the Romulan Ale I bought at Star Trek: The Experience in Vegas a decade ago. I remember it being not-at-all good, so I'm sure it's much, much worse now.

So after reading TFA, and going through the farking slideshow TFA linked to find the recipe for Mudder's Milk, I find that it's simply a White Russian with some Bailey's added. Probably tastes pretty good, and I'm sure I'll try it some day, but I somehow don't see it as having much in the way of nutrients the way Mudder's Milk was supposed to.

Um, no reason, but is there any solvent other than water that would allow alcohol to have a higher ABV before it causes you to start vomiting blood?

I prefer my fictional beverages to have electrolytes. Also, plants should crave them
