  16. 16. A Pan Galactic Gargleblaster!<br />The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster was invented by Zaphod Beeblebrox, a major character in the series. Its original, fictional, recipe is:<br />Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol&apos; Janx Spirit.<br />Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V<br />Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzene is lost).<br />Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it (in memory of all those happy Hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia).<br />Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of QualactinHypermint extract, redolent of all the heady odours of the dark Qualactin Zones.<br />Drop in the tooth of an AlgolianSuntiger. Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian suns deep into the heart of the drink.<br />Sprinkle Zamphour.<br />Add an olive.<br />Drink...but very carefully.<br />Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy <br />
