I think you're right. I will have a drink.

During an evening of real joy (and some drinking) in our house last night I sat down and wrote the following post. I was planning on posting the recipe for the drink I'd assembled, which is why I took the pictures. I just wasn't planning on doing it while still under the influence of that drink.

Rather than clean it up I thought I'd share it in it's raw form.


As of Sunday Ms. Wormer and I will have been married 17 years. That's 16.9 years of wedded bliss to those of you keeping score.

For shits and gigglles I thought it would be fun if we shared a drink from the now defunct Vegas "Star Trek the Experience" called a "Warp Core Breach." Here's a pic of said drink:

We had a kickass time in Vegas a couple of years ago drinking those and flipping the Ferengi and Klingon guys that walked through Quark's bar shit, questioning their masculinity and some such.

but the Star Trek Experience is no more and finding the ingredients to this drink turned out to be more problematic than I thought it would.

(Berfore I type anymore I think it's a good idea to say that at this point I'm very, very drunk. A wise man said"never post drunk." I kicked the shit out of that man.)

Eventually I vfound the recipe for the drink at a website where the guy swore up and down he'd abartended at Quark's. Consider this my version of "cooking with Dr. Monkerstein."

Here's the ingredients:

White rum
Dark rum
Bacardi Limon
pice rum (cpt. morgans or some such) 151 rum- doesn matter. It's all good.
Dekuyper Lucious Rasberry Rush.
Dry ice.
orange juice, pineapple juice, cranberry juice.

Get a big bowl and mix 6 parts white rum, 4 parts limon rum, 2 parts dark rum, 2 parts spice rum and 2 parts spice rum. Then add two parts Dekuptypr rasberry rush and 1 part 151.

Then mix equal parts pineapple, cranberry and orange juice into the rink. Pour over ice and add a bit of dry ice so it bubbles.

(dry ice)

(Tghe reason I'm babbling incoherently at the momemnt. Finished drink.)

Anyhoo tomorrow we're going to dim sum to celebrate our anniversayr. I really do love her, you know.

Live long and prosper.

Happy Anniversary to you and Mrs. Dean Wormer!

That drink looks pretty awesome, but I know if I tell MathMan about it, I'll hear about how stupid it is we can't buy liquor on Sunday in Georgia. And then there will be the chase around for dry ice....

mmmmmm dim sum.......

The first astronauts made a drink just like this, except it had Tang in it. Still this concoction looks like a potent and delicious adult beverage.

Mauigirl said...

Wow, some concoction. Where do you even buy dry ice?

Happy Anniversary, and yes, live long and prosper!

Dean Wormer said...


Thanks! Sorry about the dry state thing. Sunday is the day you NEED to drink.


I didn't know that. Everything's better with Tang.


You can get dry ice at most Baskin Robbins. They sell it for parties, mostly around Halloween.

Hypatia said...!

That was "shits & giggles" funny! Baskin Robbins for Halloween huh?

You know I have to try it, you know it. You two are evil temptors!

Now, we have to hear the "morning after" story as well dude...I mean we gotta prepare for our own special day too!

Arkonbey said...

Happy Anniversary!

That's a wayyyyy too complex drink. I just make Cosmopolitans and Margarittas. They are tasty and I can make them as well drunk as I can sober.

Distributorcap said...

drink that you might have trouble with your tribble!

happy anniversary

The Crow said...

Great post!

Happy anniversary, too.

Lockwood said...

Happy Anniversary, Dean! And all this time I had assumed a warp core breach would be dangerous!

okjimm said...

booze and blogging DO MIX! That was really funny! Happy, Happy to you and the wonderful woman who tolerates you!!!!!!!!!!!

pissed off patricia said...

First of all I want to wish you a belated happy anniversary. Second of all, couldn't that drink kill you? I almost got drunk just reading the ingredients.

Dean Wormer said...


Ha! I loved you, man.


I still have PLENTY of rum leftover, since it was just a little out of each bottle.

We had a great anniversary even though we mostly spent it with the kids at OMSI seeing that Davinci exhibit.


I'm usually a margarita man as well. I just had a craving...


Ha! I'm of the age where I have to have my tribble examined annually.




Oh, it was plenty dangerous. I'm lucky I survived.


Thanks! She does pretty much tolerate me. It wasn't until the next day that I realized she barely had any of the concotion.


No, it won't kill you. It's mostly juice, ice and dry ice. Biggest danger is you may burn your lip on the dry ice.

I thought filthy liberals like you were either gay or anti-family. What's wrong with you, being happily married like that?

Dean Wormer said...


I know, it's crazy, right? :P

Randal Graves said...

Don't believe him, it's a scam! His "children" are merely the prisoners in a Marxist indoctrination scheme and his "wife" is the political commissar!

So "happy anniversary," comrade!
