Bartender, Saurian brandy and a clean glass, and leave the bottle.

Back when there was still a Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas, I picked up a six-pack of Romulan Ale. I drank one. I gave one to my brother (pretty sure he has it on a shelf somewhere, or maybe he threw it out. I'm almost certain he hasn't consumed it).

I still have four left (plus the empty bottle of the one I drank) hanging out in the six-pack carrier. It was kind of a pain in the butt to get to tonight, but I extracted one bottle for a photo:

It was like Budweiser, but blue. Yuck.

I wanted to go to that and never did, years later I planned for a year to go on a ST cruise then 2 days before I slipped on the ice and then urgent care then hospital then X-rays.

Planned it for a year.Still is crushing I know I will never do it again. Oh well

I'll have a Chateaux Picard with a bowl of plomeek soup. I promise to not throw the soup across the room. Can't promise the same about the wine. :)

Those are all wines.  Did anybody ever drink wine in any Trek other than something from Picard's vineyard? Everything I remember was a synthahol version of some hard liquor. Except for Scotty who drank the real deal.

I see the Star Trek Experience is in play.

What a waste... Cedar Faire really screwed the pooch on that one, as did the Hilton for replacing it with the Michael Jackson Experience, just in time for Jackson's child sexual abuse claims to come to the spotlight.

It was a great attraction, and every time I went there, it was packed.

Warp 11 Says 'Beam Me Up'
Youtube Mvg_wT_9xyI


Red alert, my glass has gone dry,
You'd better beam me up another shot of No Kill I,
And while you're at it, please send me a yeoman or two,
We're gonna play a little game of Kobayashi Maru.

It doesn't look terrible, although might be a bit unbalanced. I'd up the mezcal and reduce the Cynar and Campari a tad.

Not a lot of experience with Campari although I know it can turn into a takeover if you overdo it - so I'll take your word

Campari is in a ton of drinks. Sometimes drinks are built on the back of campari.

I agree the levels need to be played with here or stir timing for proper dilution. It actually sound pretty good.

My wife gave me a real Saurian Brandy bottle and it's one of the favorite things in my collection. George Dickel Scotch whisky 🥃 if it's not Scottish it's crap!

I'm more of a root beer guy. It's so cloy and bubbly, like the Federation.

Some of my friends and I are missing a few hours of our memory due to sharing a Warp Core Breach. There was like what, 10-15 shots in that thing?

Yeah it packed a punch. They didn't let you order more than one per person, which was more than enough in any case.

Think I'll stick to the Sorian Brandy.

So you're tasked with making a "Klingon Blood Wine" and you go with pinot noir? Why would you do that?

Only there words to describe Star Trek binge drinking:
It is green.
