We raise a glass in toast at social events, we crack bottles of champagne against ships leaving dry dock for the first time, it brings parties together and gets the Doctor relaxing after a hard day in the medical office. Raising the spirit by raising the spirit is a time-honoured tradition we honour on each and every ship with one beverage or another, taking the time out of the busy shore leave schedule to sing drinking songs in the evening and recover from the hangover come the bright sunlight. 

Star Trek has given us a wealth of alcoholic drinks to weave into our narratives, from all different species throughout the galaxy, including bars from one end of Bajor to the far reaches of the Klingon Empire. Quark stocked his bar to the brim with everything from the Cardassian liquor Kanar, to the Modela aperitif, while on the Enterprise we had the ever-wonderful Guinan providing her sage advice and wisdom to all who turned up at that bright blue bar of Ten Forward. So, whether your Trill adores the subtle notes of a Bajoran springwine, or your Andorian challenges themselves with a Romulan ale, there's something for everyone to get stuck into.

For this week's poll, we'd like to know what beverages your characters are likely to kick back on shore leave with? What alcoholic drinks, or non-alcoholic, do your characters sup when not in the pilot's chair? 

What alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) beverage does your character enjoy?

Let's pop the cork and let the good times roll!

As a special addition to this week's poll, for any of you adventurous mixologists out there, here's the recipe for the Warp Core Breach [...]tail from the Star Trek Experience:

WARP CORE BREACH
(To be served in a big globe-type bowl for 2 or more people)

  • 3 ounces – White rum
  • 2 ounces – Lemon rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces – Spiced rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces – Dark rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces – Razzmatazz
  • 1 1/2 ounces – Bacardi 151 rum
  • 30 ounces of any juice (commonly cranberry)
  • Dry ice & cubed ice

Place a chip of dry ice in the big bowl for smoky effect.  Combine all 10 ounces of rum in a large glass separate from the bowl.  Pour fruit juice into the big bowl.  Add cubed ice. (2 or 3 large scoops)  Mix in rum combination.  Stir.

The Vulcan tea equivalent of an energy drink. As a detail it's bright orange, with all the appearance of being corrosive. The taste is citric and may leave your palate numb for a few minutes :P

Like a lucky bag - who knew those Vulcans had a sense of adventure? 😛
