Yea folks I’ve been drinking a taste sensation in the form of the latte equivalent of the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster from the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy!
Yes, I can hear you all saying, ‘What the hell is she going on about?”
Well let me bring you up to speed of the story behind the latte equivalent of the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster – Scream Baby Scream
So yesterday and after posting up my article for towel day the other day, I challenged the Barista, Mike at Relax Coffee Lounge, to make me a latte version of the drink and to see if it could be done.
Today was the day to see if Mike had completed the challenge, I met up with my friend Jay and fellow Hitchhiker, to taste the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster latte and after my breakfast, Mike made the drinks for us to try.
I had sent Mike a couple of hints to the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, including the scene from the film, Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy and that “It’s like your brain being smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped around a large golden brick!”, so could Mike do it!
So the time had come and as we received our drinks we were amazed by the look of them and we both counted to three and then took our first sips of our Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters!
OMG! My Brain Was Smashed Out With A Slice Of Lemon Wrapped Around A Large Golden Brick!
What a taste sensation, with its extremely strong taste and the kick of lemon along with banana and the other ingredients, Mike’s take on the drink was amazing and Jay, in his craziness, added to the powerful taste with a topping of chilli powder, you crazy fool Jay.
Now I’ve made alcoholic versions of the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster in the past, but boy oh boy, nothing compares to the taste that Mike created, its strong, overpowering and kick to the head, loved it and so did Jay, it’s the perfect geek latte that anyone could try.
So What Went In To The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster Latte?
Now this is the thing, with the amount that went in to the concoction, it’s a very expensive drink and would cost almost £5 for one, but when you see what goes in it, you can see why!
