The Taste Sensation of a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster Latte!

Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster

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!

Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster Latte Recipe

4 Shots Espresso (Make you feel like being hit by a golden brick)
2 shots Blueberry Syrup
Steamed Milk
Topped With Whipped Cream
Banana Marinated In Lemon (Lemon Wrapped Brick)
Drizzle Of Lemon Syrup (Just to boost the lemon!)
And A Secret Ingredient (Shhh we won’t tell!)

Don’t Forget Your Towel!

So all that leaves me left to say, is don’t forget your towel, you never know when a fellow Hitchhiker will need a towel and after a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, you just never know what could happen next!

    Four shots of espresso! Good grief, I wouldn’t sleep for a week after that, I bet you were buzzing after that, mind you I have to admit, I would love to try one ;)

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen Woodham

      I’m just coming down from my caffeine high now! It was an amazing drink with one hell of a kick, but I loved it, you wouldn’t think you could have so much fun with a friend just from drinking a latte :lol:

  • jay hill

    after drinking such a concoction,im beginning to think that was a very bad idea of ours,awesome laugh,but i still think you should sign a disclaimer before drinking it,ive just found myself on a neighbours roof,throwing skittles at passers by,or maybe this is just a flashback to this morning?i dont know whats real anymore….never again.!!!!!!!,…till next time.lol.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen Woodham

      LOL .. Was that bowling skittles or the ones you can eat? I hope they weren’t bowling skittles that you tried to eat, then couldn’t and that’s why you were throwing them at passer by ROFLOL .. I don’t think Mike will let us have another Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster Latte, special after we screamed out load after the first taste ;)

    I don’t think I could have managed one of those, one little latte keeps me awake, so this drink would have me running around like a crazy bear! Glad you and Jay enjoyed it though ;)

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen Woodham

      That’s the last thing we need, you running around like a mad little bear and jay throwing things at passers by :lol: ;)

    Dont let the Health Org get hold of that, god knows how many calories it had in it!!

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen Woodham

      It’s not the calories they have to worry about, it’s probably more the strength of caffeine lol ;)

  • David Leonhardt

    Nice try! But I’ve read the book and the film doesn’t do the drink justice. Although the recipe is sure to inspire, it won’t compare to the real thing (which few humans could actually survive).

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen Woodham

      We’ll never get the real thing, sadly :lol:

      • David Leonhardt

        Well, the real thing would be something to share with our fondest enemies. ;-)

          He he, very true ;)

    Hey Karen,

    Really cute and funny! I don’t think this is “My Cup of Tea!” shall we say. I don’t like espresso cause I would be awake for days! Nice article. I really enjoyed it. Sally

      Thanks Sally, it was one heck of a caffeine boost, but it was lurvely ;)
