STAR TREK COCKTAILS: A STELLAR COMPENDIUM

PUBLISHER: EAGLEMOSS PUBLICATIONS LTD • RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW

Anyone who was fortunate enough to travel to Las Vegas and visit the much-missed Star Trek: The Experience will experience their own pangs of nostalgia as they open the pages of this book from Eaglemoss. Smartly presented in 8 chapters, accompanied by some delightful artwork, this kicks off with an introduction detailing the many times recreational beverages have been a part of the wider Star Trek story, from the Saurian Brandy and Romulan Ale of the Original Series to Data trying a 'little something from Forcas III' in Generations, the many drinks available at Quarks and the ubiquitous synthehol. Trek likes a tipple, and once you've thumbed through the pages of Star Trek Cocktailsso will you.

We go from Aperitifs including drinks like Jean-Luc's Earl Grey Martini and Chekov's Uncle Vanya to Romantic drinks like the Heaven of Nine or the Mind Meld. There are entertaining drinks like Captain Janeway's Irish Coffee to Party Time drinks like Tilly's Ping Pong Beer, and many come with easy to follow recipes so you can make them yourself at home.

Back in 1999, we had the Star Trek Cookbook, which saw Neelix serve as our guide to 24th-century culinary delights as well as mixing up a guide to everything you could drink at the Star Trek: The Experience, and 21 years later this delivers a well-timed, fun menu of Trek-inspired drinks that everyone from cadets to fleet admirals can enjoy. Just don't do it while you're piloting a starship.
