No matter what species or planet you call your own (or dress up as this Halloween), you can’t get through a dystopian society without some serious alcohol. From the Twelve Colonies to Galifrey, these drinks really take the edge off kicking ass and taking names.
Firefly - Mudder’s Milk
The idea of Jayne Cobb being a hero might not sit right with you, but this concoction from one of the more memorable Firefly episodes... well, it might not sit right either.
Meant to serve as a meal replacement and a temporary escape from a hard-knock life, this cocktail better suits a rough Tuesday than a party.

- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 Banana
- 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
- 1/4 Cup Oatmeal
- Honey and Cinnamon to taste
Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend until consistency is smooth.
Doctor Who - The Master
If you’re feeling particularly villainous, this cocktail version of the Doctor’s oldest frenemy is charismatic and deceitfully sweet. Watch the intake or, the next day, you’ll hear the drumming too.
- 1 oz. Dark Rum
- 1 oz. Crème de Cacao
- 1-2 dashes Angostura Bitters
- 4 oz. Coca-Cola
Combine the rum, liqueur, and bitters in a shaker over ice. Pour into a glass and top with cola.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy - Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster

This prison-born elixir might not be the classiest drink, but when you're running from hostile Cylons, you’re not too picky. So say we all!
- 6 oz Midori
- 4 oz Blue Curacao
- 2 oz lime juice
- ½ cup of ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend. Optional: garnish with a stemmed cherry.
