The Vulcan Mind-Probe uses an ingredient that’s uncommon in cocktails: ouzo. That’s an anise-flavored liqueur associated with Greece. It tastes a little like absinthe. This recipe blends it with 151 Proof Rum and no mixers, so it’s rather powerful.

This drink actually makes a great aperitif, stimulating your appetite and making your meal seem a little bit tastier. It’s also nice for Star Trek related drinking games because the overall proof won’t knock you out in two shots. Whether a drink can actually probe your mind or not is up for debate, but since you’re going to consume it anyway, your secrets should remain safe.

Recipe

  • 1/2 ounce ouzo
  • 1/2 ounce 151 proof rum

Pour into a shot glass and serve.
