Doctor Who returns to TV next weekend with the 50th Anniversary special! It’s incredible to think about how a show could stick around and adapt as long as it has. As a giant Whovian, I had to create a drink to celebrate. There are many sonic screwdriver cocktails on the net already and I thought it might be time to create something that everyone enjoyed. Make sure to check out the rest of the Geek & Sundry Vlogs this week for other Doctor Who related content and if you like geeky cocktails (which I know you do) subscribe so that you can see more episodes of Critical Hit Cocktails with Mitch Hutts.
