My Home Bar: Cosmic Cocktails
In honor of Space Week, I thought I would search for some space-themed drinks. Whoopee, I found a Black Hole!
- The Black Hole, from Twisted Physics:
So called because after one of these, you have already passed the event horizon of inebriation.
1 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. vodka
.5 oz. Cointreau or Triple Sec
.5 oz. dark rum
.5 oz. Amaretto
Pour into an old-fashioned glass over (scant) ice. Stir gently and watch time slow.
Also, one little fact that can make every cocktail night a science night – did you know gin & tonics will always glow under a black light, because tonic water has quinine in them. Look out, Radium Girls.
This isn’t really science-related, but in the name of the grammar girl inside me, I love being able to listen to Brian Cox pronounce Scotch for me, so I don’t make a fool of myself the next time I try to ask for Lamphroaig.
