How to make a “Cylon Shooter”

Cylon Shooter

The SciFi channel just aired a funny promo for Galactica that features Grace Park (Boomer) and Tahmoh Penikett (Helo) making a BSG-inspired cocktail drink called a “Cylon Shooter”.

It contains these ingredients:
• “A little bit of Lichee — something exotic”
• Coconut Creme
• Lichee Juice
• Grenadine
• Vodka
• Tabasco Sauce
• Cherries

Boomer never actually explains how much of each ingredient goes into a Cylon, but we’ll take a stab at it.

1. Blend the lichee fruit, coconut creme, and lichee juice into a nice creamy consistency.
2. Pour the mixture into the bottom half of a shot glass.
3. Next, add enough vokda to fill the shotglass to 3/4’s of its height. (More is okay, but don’t forget you’ll need some room at the top for the next step.)
4. Add a dollop of tabasco sauce “for that kick”.
5. Pour grenadine into the center of the drink, allowing it to bubble up from the bottom. (This step gives the drink its signature “Cylon red” look.)
6. Place a cherry on top.
7. Drink to the Cylons… umm… Colonials!

    I dare you to try one.

    Did you see the rest of the Sci-Fi Inside special? It was great. They talked to most of the cast…

    I probably will! My regular BSG watching crew is abroad right now, but when they get back, I suspect all of us will take on your challenge… ;)

  3. […] um tho. I also decided to look it up and see if there was a version of it on the net, and someone figured it out. This entry was posted on Thursday, […]

    I just ran across a recipe for a “Battlestar Galactica” drink:
