Pour the tia maria, vodka and cherry brandy together into a pint glass. Add a dash of lime juice. Fill with equal amounts of dry cider and 7-up, and add ice cubes.
Watch out for gold bricks.

You'll feel like you've been hit with one after one of these.

Never drink more than two Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters unless you are a thirty-ton mega elephant with bronchial pneumonia!

One wonders if the creator of this wonderous recipe has direct access to Douglas Adams' brain.

I've just one suggestion -- make it 42 ml of vodka :P
Wrapped in a slice of lemon of course

The lemon gives it that extra stinging sensation.

What is this, a joke?
The original recepie calls for "Ol' Janx Spirit, Seawater from Sangtragius V, Arcturan Mega-gin, Fallian Marsh Gas, Qalacint Hypermint extract, The Tooth of an Agolian Suntiger, Zamphour, and finally, an olive."
The only thing you could actually get on earth, the olive, is left out. There is no Gin, no pure spirits, no gas, and nothing even remotely minty. I call bs.
Unforgettable, assuming you can remember..

Here's what the Encyclopedia Galactica has to say about alcohol. It says that alcohol is a colourless volatile liquid formed by the fermentation of sugars and also notes its intoxicating effect on certain carbon-based life forms. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy also mentions alcohol. *It says that the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. It says that the effect of a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick*. The Guide also tells you on which planets the best Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters are mixed, how much you can expect to pay for one and what voluntary organizations exist to help you rehabilitate afterwards. The Guide even tells you how you can mix one yourself. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy sells rather better than the Encyclopedia Galactica.

It's like having your brain smashed out the back of your head by a slice of lemon wrapped around a gold brick. The guide also mentions a number of excellent charities set up to help those who try the drink rehabilitate afterwards.

No, deep thought has mistaken THE answer. THE answer is the pan-galactic gargle blaster. :)

May taste nice, but hardly having you brain smashed out by a gold brick warped in a slice of lemon.
Props go out...
