Claimer: This cocktail is the invention of Neil deGrasse Tyson. I heard about it through the Star Talk Radio podcast and thought it sounded quite good. I'd tried it within a week as was very pleased to say I was right about my impression.
The Kepler 22b consists of equal parts Blue Curacao, Midori and Vodka added to a shaker with ice, shaken, strained and then topped off with ginger beer.
Blue Curacao: The potential for liquid water
Midori: The potential for plant life
Vodka: Give it a little extra omph
Ice & Ginger beer: the rocky body
This is from memory. If I got the description wrong, someone correct me and I'll update this post.
After some discussion we have moved this thread from Goggle Hangouts (since it is not about learning astronomy) and moved it to OTB. Cheers!
Please make sure that if you are going to experimentally test any of these recipes that you obey all local ordinances with regard to the serving and consumption of ethyl alcohol containing formulations, and with regard to post-consumption activities.
