Counselor Kat’s Favorite Drinks

As the ship’s counselor, I don’t recommend drinking alcohol regularly, but if you do, I have some cocktails you might like to try. When I am not on the ship, I bartend, and my manager gave me permission to make some new recipes for upcoming events. All but one are my own mixes because I did not have Earl Grey tea at the bar, but be assured I have tried all of them, and they are all SciFi themed. Without further ado, here are my seven cocktails.

Blue Eyes of Arrakis

  • 1 oz of Vodka  i used Absolut but any vodka will work; I just like Absolut
  • ½ oz of Coconut Rum; I used Malibu
  • ½ oz Blue Curacao
  • 4 oz of pineapple juice
  • Mix liquor in a shaker with ice until cold to your hand; strain over the juice and serve with a gummy worm if you wish.

Flowing Spice

  • 2 oz Captain Morgan
  • 6 oz any good ginger beer; I like Fever Beer
  • Pour into glass and enjoy.

And now some Star Trek cocktails:

One Night Stand on Riza

  • 2 oz vodka
  • ½ oz of Triple Sec
  • 3 oz of OJ
  • Same as before, mix in a shaker and float ½ oz Grenadine
  • yes, this is a take on the screwdriver


Sweet Klingon Blood Wine

There are so many recipes for Klingon blood wine, and here is mine. This one I have made and tried. It takes some time, so obviously I did not make this one at the bar, but some of you may know we celebrate many Klingon get-togethers, and I made this wine a few years ago.

  • In a large jar mix
  • 1 Bottle of port wine; any cheap bottle will work if it’s port
  • 1 can of frozen cranberry juice
  • 1 can cranberry sauce; NOT JELLY, as it must have the berries
  • I jar of maraschino cherries
  • Strain cherries and pour juice into a large jar; save cherries for later
  • Mix all ingredients in the large jar you have the cherry juice in. Seal it up and keep in the fridge for no less than 2 months; the day you are ready to serve, add 1 liter of Fireball whiskey
  • For those who prefer a smooth taste, strain into a glass. For the Klingons in the group, no need to strain; just pour into the skull of your enemy and garnish with a cherry

Fereninar Swamp Water

  • 1 oz sour apple pucker
  • 1 oz Midori
  • ½ oz Amaretto
  • ½ oz heavy cream
  • 3oz 7up
  • Layer in a tall glass.
  • This reminded me of an egg cream.

I would like to thank John Miller, aka Lord Vampyr (House Vampyr KAG), for the Picard cocktail recipe.

Picard Cocktail

  • 8 oz tea, Earl Grey, hot (giggles)
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • Serve hot

Romulan Ale

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1/4 oz Blue Curacao
  • 3/4 oz dry London gin
  • 3 oz 7up
  • Pour into glass; just do not let your commanding officer know you have this one



There you go, some of my favorite drinks. I hope you try some of these; if you do, let me know.
