Star Trek: The Next Generation Drink Menu

Star Trek: The Next Generation, a show that relaunched Star Trek on television. Taking place nearly 100 years after the original series, the characters inhabit a world many generations after the first series. Bringing the production values from the movies to the small screen resulted in a 7-year arc that launched a period of television that lasted 18 years, through three additional series. Now we are seeing a resurgence of the period with the launch of Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Picard, and honest high-quality homage in Orville. From its clunky first season to its larger narrative last season, this series explored the future that Gene Roddenberry crafted in the 1960s. Let us lift a glass with these drinks to the crew of the USS Enterprise-D.

Altairian Grand Premier Mimosa

Made from the finest grapes of grown in the Southern Vineyard of a planet in the Altair system. The sparkling wine was once spiked by Lore with quadratanium to incapacitate the android Data so he could impersonate him. Our mimosa is made with human sparkling wine and a bit stronger.

  • Sparkling white wine
  • 1-ounce Coconut rum
  • Pineapple juice

Fill a champagne flute halfway with sparkling white wine and add coconut rum. Fill with pineapple juice.

Chech’tluth

Following first contact, a group of Irish space Luddites left Earth and settled the planet Bringloid V. The USS Enterprise evacuated the people to save them from the increased solar flare activity. When Lt. Worf asks the replicator for a strong drink in Klingon to placate their leader, the replicator furnished this Klingon drink.

  • 0.5-ounce Everclear
  •  0.5-ounce 151 rum
  • 0.5-ounce silver tequila
  • 0.5-ounce gin
  • 0.75-ounce gin
  • 0.75-ounce triple sec
  • 0.75-ounce simple syrup
  • 0.75-ounce lemon juice
  • Cola
  • Lemon wedge
  • Dry ice (optional)

Put a chip of dry ice into the bottom of a pint glass and add regular ice on top of it. Add the alcohols, simple syrup, and lemon juice to a pint glass. Fill with cola, and garnish with a lemon wedge.

Coco-no-no

When Chief Engineer Geordi La Forge takes Christy Henshaw on a date to the holodeck, this is his go-to cocktail. Traditionally this is served in half a coconut with a paper umbrella. The rejection La Forge feels leads him to a fictitious relationship with a holographic version of the designer of the Enterprise’s warp engines.

  • 1-ounce light rum
  • 0.5-ounce whipped cream vodka
  • 4-ounces coconut milk
  • 0.5-ounce simple sugar

Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass.

Klingon Firewine

Surprisingly, this drink does not have a largely unpronounceable name for it in Klingonese. Wolf attempted to order this drink in the Deadwood holodeck program, much to the chagrin of the NPC barmaid, Annie. The holodeck program produces a version of Deadwood, that is a far departure from the actual one in reality.

  • 1-ounce Fireball whiskey
  • 2-ounces red wine
  • 0.5-ounce orange juice
  • 0.5-ounce pineapple juice
  • 0.5-ounce cranberry juice
  • 0.5-ounce lemon juice

Mix ingredients into a red wine glass with light ice.

Samarian Sunset

In the show, the drink goes from clear liquid to a traditional sunset-style drink. Data could make them the traditional style as was made to by Counselor Deanna Troi. As we cannot create that effect without the magic of television effects, we have crafted this color-changing drink.

  • 1-ounce vodka
  • 0.5-ounce light rum
  • 0.5-ounce simple syrup
  • 1-ounce lemon juice
  • 1 dropper b’Lure butterfly pea flower extract

Add vodka, rum, simple syrup, and flower extract to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Pour lemon juice into the drink and enjoy the color change.

  1. These drinks are fascinating! However, I don’t drink, and there’s nothing for me to imbibe! 😭 Could you please create non-alcoholic variations so that I could enjoy?
