Extra Special Bonus Entry!


Of all the drinks readers suggested I try out on both of my articles, the Screaming Viking sits up there with the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster from HHGTTG and the Lawnmower from the Simpsons. What you may not know, however, is that all three of those drinks were on my initial list before I went out to get the ingredients. I passed on the PGGB because the ingredients don’t exist on this shit-ass planet. I also passed on the Lawnmower because wheatgrass juice is hard to find and also its disgusting.  I did, however, mix and taste the Screaming Viking from Cheers. Of course I did. Everybody knows the Screaming Viking. Here’s the issue with that entry, though. While we know it’s a drink everyone tries on the show, they never say the ingredients. We only know that there is a cucumber involved.

So when I put the drink together, I found a recipe online that told you how to make it. But what the hell do they know? When you search for Screaming Viking recipe on Google, you find that every Tom, Dick and Harry have come up with their own variation. I would never know if mine was the real one the characters tasted. But I wrote it up so I figured what the butt? Post it here for anyone who ever wanted to know what some guy thought of a drink that may or may not exist. So here she is:

The Screaming Viking – Cheers

You all remember this classic episode of Cheers. It’s the one where they make a friendly wager. No, the other one where they make a friendly wager. No, the other one…forget it. In this episode, a new bartender named Wayne says he can make any drink known to man. The Cheers crew bet him that if they can find a drink he can’t make, he’ll have to quit. Enter the Screaming Viking.

The Cocktail

This is a drink where the recipe is not explicitly stated on the show. However, Food and Wine magazine has a recipe which is the generally accepted version of this drink.

Ingredients: from Food and Wine

1 Piece of seedless cucumber, plus 1 cucumber slice for garnish
5 mint leaves
Ice
1 1/2    ounces gin
4 to 5 ounces chilled tonic water

See that boxing glove there? I used it to bruise the daylights out of those cucumbers. As the recipe calls for, of course. This one was almost like if you mixed a typical gin and tonic with that cucumber water they have in the waiting room before you get a massage. That is to say, not terrible. I sipped at that a bit before adding the mint and it was a pleasant experience. But then I added the grinded up mint leaves and it completely ruined the integrity of the drink. Maybe you’re not supposed to grind up mint leaves or maybe my pallet just doesn’t like all of these conflicting flavors but something about it was keeping me from enjoying it after the mint. I guess I’m going to go with the status quo on this one.

So there it is. I may or may not have tried a Screaming Viking and I may or may not have enjoyed it.
