Irish Raktajino

'The infamous Klingon coffee from “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” is the base for this Irish Coffee riff. It’s something one might imagine Miles O’Brien and Worf concocting once the blood wine runs out. The goat milk gives it some funk, and the smoked paprika provides an earthy, spicy hit. Smells like Kronos!'

'“Conundrum,” the episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” in which everyone gets their memories erased and Data thinks he’s a bartender, is one of the series’ best. He makes this drink for Troi after losing a game of 3-D chess. It goes from clear to green to red in the blink of an eye. We don’t yet have the technology to recreate that marvel, but we can mimic it using a trick with red-cabbage-infused rum. The drink will turn from purple to red with the addition of the fruit juices.'
