How to Make a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster

During Towel Week, we plan to pay our respects to Douglas Adams as much as humanly possible. Unfortunately, being human in the early part of the 21st century, we’re tethered pretty firmly to the Solar system. As such, we find it a little difficult to raise a toast to Douglas Adams with what ex-President of the Universe Zaphod Beeblebrox considered to be the “Best Drink in Existence” because securing its ingredients from across said Galaxy proves currently impossible.

But humans are pretty resourceful creatures, so here are some Earthling approximations of the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster that may serve you well in your toasts to Douglas Adams over the course of Towel Week and Towel Day! Cheers!

Thanks to Greenless Studios, Geek and Sundry Vlogs, and Common Man Cocktails for keeping our thirsts quenched!

Our resident "Bob" (pictured here through the lens of photographer Jason DeFillippo) is in love with a woman who talks to animals. He has a fondness for belting out songs about seafaring and whiskey (arguably inappropriate in most social situations). He's arm-wrestled robots and won. He was born in a lighthouse on the storm-tossed shores of an island that has since been washed away and forgotten, so he's technically a citizen of nowhere. He's never killed in anger. He once underwent therapy for having an alien in his face, but he assures us that he's now feeling "much better." Fogarty also claims that he was once marooned along a tiny archipelago and survived for months using only his wits and a machete, but we find that a little hard to believe.
