Spaceballs, honestly my all-time favorite movie growing up and given that, it was only a matter of time before I created a cocktail for it. There’s so much material in the movie that would go great for a cocktail creation but for this particular one I chose a part towards the end of the movie where Barf, being hungry as usual, decided to eat the fortune cookie that Yoghurt gave them. Upon opening it Yoghurt appears to them and reveals to LoneStar that he is a prince and must get to the wedding of Prince Valium and Princess Vespa before she says “I do”. But low on gas they feel that they won’t be able to make it there in time until hidden in the glove box Yoghurt revealed to them the answer they needed, Liquid Schwarts. Now with the ship super fueled on Liquid Schwarts they race across space just in time to stop the wedding and allow LoneStar to marry the princess.
As you can see, this is definitely my favorite movie of all time so I tried my best to recreate the Liquid Schwarts and do it justice. Since it gave the ship immediate fuel and power I chose to use Red Bull as the main ingredient. Red Bull has a very strong flavor and in order to mask it I chose to add some Triple Sec and a dash of Scrappy’s Aromatic Bitters which can be purchased from www.awesomedrinks.com which has many bitters and other supplies perfect for your cocktail creations. The bitters add a very fragrant aroma and flavor to the cocktail and extenuate the sweetness it has. This is a very favorable drink for any occasion.
