“The perfect holiday gift for the Star Trek fan in your life!

Or a soothing sip of Captain Picard’s Earl Grey Martini? This voyage into the future of stylish drinking is a must for all Star Trek – and cocktail – fans. With a galaxy of illustrations, and a witty garnish of quotations, this book will help you celebrate your favorite show.

“Mix the classic cocktails served on Starfleet starships throughout the Federation! Picard, Kirk, McCoy, Scotty, Quark, and more – try out each crew member’s favorite!”

Review:

This is a small book that is packed with useful recipes. The introduction explains how alcohol was a part of Star Trek from the beginning of the series.

The chapters are each devoted to different categories of drinks, including: aperitifs, cocktails, romantic drinks, entertaining, party drinks, relaxation, drinks for lonely nights and drinks for after hours. Each recipe is accompanied by an illustration showing the drink and by a Trek quote.

Fans will be pleased to see that all Trek eras are covered, from the original series through Star Trek: Discovery. And the drinks come from places other than Earth; fans can make drinks named after or drinks favored by aliens such as the Borg, the Romulans, Klingons, Tribbles and more.

This book will surely be of interest to those who love Trek and who like to mix up different drinks. With New Year’s Eve rapidly approaching, why not pick up the book and try out some of these recipes for yourself. I plan to do so.
