What could be better than 50 years of Star Trek?
Celebrating Star Trek with a space-themed cocktail of course!
I saw this 'Spocktail' advertised on a local TGI Fridays website when we were looking for somewhere to go out for dinner. Perfect, I thought: a science fiction cocktail would be a great way to celebrate Star Trek.
But when we got to our nearest TGI Fridays, the Spocktail was nowhere to be seen.
I still don't know why: perhaps it was only being sold in a different branch, or a special offer I'd just missed, or one of those interesting secret menu items I've read about but not been outgoing enough to ask for.
But I wasn't going to be daunted by my drink not existing, so I asked the friendly waitress and she went off to ask the barman, who said yes, they could make one (very nice of them too, and yes we did leave them a good tip!)
And they came back with this fantastic looking blue, green and black layered drink.
Since it wasn't on the menu, I had no idea what was in it but hey, we Trekkies are all about exploring the unknown, right?
