.5 oz Bourbon
.75 oz Gin
1 oz Sour Apple Pucker

One of the top requested drinks in the comments of each video is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster from Douglas Adams’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. This version of the drink is created by Mitch Hutts for my Geek & Sundry vlog, Critical Hit Cocktails.
Rainbow Road (Super Mario Kart cocktail)
4 oz. Orange juice
½ oz. Gin
⅓ oz. Grenadine
⅓ oz. Rum
3 oz. Vodka
2 splashes Blue Curacao
Directions: Mix orange juice and gin together and pour them into the glass. Then, stir the rum and grenadine together and pour it slowly down the side of the glass - it should settle at the bottom, turning the bottom red and the area immediately above it orange. Mix the vodka and blue Curacao together and then layer it on top of the orange juice. The top should remain blue, but some should settle down to create a green layer. Like Super Mario Kart's toughest course, this drink may be difficult to finish.
A note from the creator:
People! The first Mario Kartgame game out for Super Nintendo 21 YEARS AGO TODAY! Super Mario Kartwas the first time we got to fall into infinite space off the seizure-inducing Rainbow Road. So, we really had no choice but to make this powerful, colorful, easy-to-spill drink:
In addition to taking our inaugural drifts around Rainbow Road, on September 1, 1992 we triggered boos and lightning bolts, played as Koopa Troopa and Bowser, and tied balloons to our karts and shot each other with shells FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. The original game is still a ton of fun, but it’s great to see how much those basic elements have evolved over the last 21 years.
Here, have a taste of the madness! (video below):

1 oz Gin

Directions: Add gin and blue curacao to a lowball glass, over ice. Fill the glass with your lemon-lime soda, garnish with a cherry on top of the ice cubes, and serve. Pew pew pew.
