There are quite literally dozens of recipes out there for this nefarious and legendary beverage, some of which are good, some bad, and some truly “out there.” I have tested out many of the recipes found online, and as such have enjoyed some, hated others and in some cases suffered the consequences. Being by trade a bartender myself I of course feel compelled to offer up my personal recipe. Let me preface my offering by saying that the Gargleblaster is not well known in the bars and pubs of the American west where I currently reside, and that asking for one in some areas can procure free of charge many strange looks, insults, and questions. The look of the drink alone may cause accusations pertaining to one’s lack of manliness, and the chance to fist fight if so inclined. I typically combat all the aforementioned simply by sending one down to the curios person in question. The bright green color seems to deem the beverage as “girlie,” that is at least until the audience to your choice of liquids finds out what is actually in it.
