SAMARIAN SUNSET COCKTAIL RECIPE

SAMARIAN SUNSET COCKTAIL RECIPE

One of our favorite Star Trek inspired drinks, the Samarian Sunset. This recipe is curated from Liquor.com.

“Conundrum,” the episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” in which everyone gets their memories erased and Data thinks he’s a bartender, is one of the series’ best. He makes this drink for Troi after losing a game of 3-D chess. It goes from clear to green to red in the blink of an eye. We don’t yet have the technology to recreate that marvel, but we can mimic it using a trick with red-cabbage-infused rum. The drink will turn from purple to red with the addition of the fruit juices.
