We usually don't feature beverage recipes here at Open Thread, but this attempt at a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster might bring discussion ...and controversy!

The recipe here is a more involved variation the traditional Vesper (a James Bond drink), with some added danger of infusing the drink using double nitrous oxide in a whipped cream dispenser.

Maybe the "having your head hit with a gold brick wrapped in lemon" is simply that some lemon zest in a whipped cream dispenser exploded on your noggin?

On earth, you get minty lemonade with Vodka and Gin and call it a PGGB? Then again, maybe the true Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster can only be made by Zaphod Beeblebrox.

Since Towel Day (a celebration of Douglas Adams) isn't until May 25, you have until then to perfect your own version.
