'Take the juice from one bottle of Ol' Janx Spirit.
Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V - Oh, that Santraginean seawater. Oh, those Santraginean fish!
Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzine is lost).
Allow four liters of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it, in memory of all those happy hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia.
Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin Hypermint extract, redolent of all the heady odors of the dark Qualactin Zones, subtle, sweet and mystic.
Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian Suns deep into the heart of the drink.
Sprinkle Zamphour.
Add an olive.
Drink...but...very carefully...'

Lincoln Greenhaw's (RGreenhaw@gnn.com) PGGB recipe is:

This recipe is the nearest equivalent to the real one, that will still taste good - if you have any taste buds left by the time the messages get to your brain.

In a 12 oz. glass, pour
4 oz.'s of Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps
2 oz.'s of sparkling water (or Club Soda)
about one oz. of solid Aftershock Alcohol crystals. (Yes, they exist.)
Allow some air from a bottle of women's perfume to bubble through it in memory of all those lonely nights drinking Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters, and all those to come, pour 1 shot of peppermint schnapps over the back of a spoon into the mixture, drop in an Algolian Suntiger Tooth (Melted or formed red sugar in the shape of a tooth, or the best shape you can make it.) sprinkle ginger, add an olive if you want, and drink.

PGGB by Mark Dowell

This is a old Southern drink that I think may fit the bill. The last person who drank one claimed to have been abducted by vogons, or that was what he told his wife, anyway. Here it is:

1.5 oz Jack Daniels
1.5 oz Southern Comfort
1.5 oz Jim Beam
1.5 oz 101 Fighting Cock aka Wild Turkey
1 oz triple sec
1 oz grenadine
Serve over crushed ice and fill almost to top with cola.

Float midori on top and flame with 151 bacardi.

PGGB by Steve Jakes

Into a mug add the following:

1 part Bailey's Irish Cream
1 part Tia Maria, (Kaluha works but is not prefered)
1/2 to 1 part Amaretto, depending on taste
Hot Coffee, if there's room left.

PGGB by TJHovey@aol.com

In a glass,

Pour in 1/2 ounce of Peppermint Mist or Blue Curacao (blue liqueurs). Add 3/4 ounce of Southern Comfort. Gently pour in (at an angle) 1/2 ounce of 184 proof alcohol (yes, that's 92% straight grain alcohol!). Over the back of a silver spoon, pour in a small amount of green food dye, and twirl the glass clockwise to create green `trails' in the alcohol. Drop in an Alka-Seltzer tablet carved to look like a Arcturan suntiger's tooth (which coincidentally looks remarkably like an Earth feline's canine), which bubbles up thorough the mixture. Add an olive, and if you've mixed it right, the olive will float in the middle of the drink, which is really froody! Have a gold brick and a lemon twist handy so you can compare sensations and thus judge if the PGGB has been mixed correctly.

Apart from drinking very carefully, use small shot glasses! The rumours of feeling like you've had your brains smashed out with a lemon twist wrapped around a gold brick are true!

Get everything alcoholic you can find, including as much tequila and brandy as humanly possible. Add five drops of vanilla essence. Mix them together, and add an olive, seeing as I can't find anything better. Drink.

Don't drink this around anyone who's respect you might want in the morning.

Rainbow Theatre, London (HHGTTG stage performance)

70% Champagne
20% Vodka
10% Blue Curacao
A small silverskin onion
A sugar cube soaked in bitters
(also a lump of dry ice, if you can get it, for effect)

Hertford College bar, Oxford University

2 measures of vodka
1 measure of Bacardi
1 measure of Malibu
1 measure of tequila
1 measure of Blue Curacao

The total volume of liquid is made up to 1 pint with lemonade or orange juice, giving a blue or green drink. The green one is opaque and glows (faintly) in the dark.

The effect is not complete until the morning after, when the little people will be trying to drill out of your head. Guaranteed to stun a 20 tonne mega-elephant with bronchial pneumonia.

Mostly Harmless - Fanzine of ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha club, Brighton

Take the liquid contained in a 200 ml bottle of EverClear to remind you that your head will be clear forever if you drink too many Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters, and that your brain will clear of anything soon after you start drinking some, if not before.

Into it, slowly pour a 750 ml bottle of Bombay Sapphire to remind you of the marvelous beauty of the old Santraginean seas, or an equal amount of Jeremiah Weed in acknowledgement of what has happened to the Santraginean Seas and their lifeforms.

Now add 750 ml of Cold Wild Turkey, letting it run into the mixture as we run through life to remind us of all the lifeforms we meet and experience while hitchhiking through the galaxy.

Speedily stirring, add 375 ml of Herradura Tequila, mixing it in to commemorate the galactic hitchhikers who died of pleasure among the vapors and gasses in the marshes of Fallia.

Over the bowl of a silver spoon, let flow 1 liter of rum in memory of the waterfalls and their glorious rainbows encountered on your journeys through the galaxy of life.

Next, drop in the worm found in a bottle of Mezcal, watching it dissolve into the mixture. If the bottom falls out and the worm survives, drink at your own risk.

Finally, sprinkle into the mixture some Gatorade to commemorate the lifeforms which have vanished and are becoming extinct, both sentient and non-sentient, especially those most in need of aid.

If this many Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters are too many for the number of people you think you are, mix together the following amounts of ingredients as described above for a single serving.

1 oz. EverClear
4 oz. Bombay Sapphire or Jeremiah Weed
4 oz. Cold Wild Turkey
2 oz. Herradura Tequila
5 oz. Rum
1 worm from bottle of Mezcal
2 oz. Gatorade

This makes one approximately 18 ounce Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. The reason this drink seems so large is that Zaphod Beeblebrox has two heads, so when he created it, it came out to 9 ounces per head, so both were happy.

Before drinking, eat one olive to create a sweetness in it which is not there.

Drink very, very extremely carefully at your own risk, and remember where your towel is (if you can).
