If you’re a “Star Trek” fan, you can choose from a variety of options, including “The Next Generation,” “Voyager,” “The Original Series” and even “Picard.” If you’re a cocktail fan, you have a near infinite number of great drinks available to quench your thirst. But if you’re a “Star Trek” fan who loves themed cocktails, well, your options have been limited. Fortunately, enterprising barkeeps like John deBary have concocted cocktails like the Romulan Ale Fizz to please the most passionate Trekkies.

Romulan Ale is banned in the Federation, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying this fun cocktail, which is essentially a Gin Fizz sporting the Romulan’s characteristic cobalt color. It features navy-strength gin, blue curaçao, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white. Tonic marries the ingredients together and lends effervescence, while a few drops of orange blossom water provide a dose of floral aromatics. It’s a strong but refreshing drink, perfect for serving one of the Federation’s oldest rivals.


  • 1 ounce navy-strength gin

  • 1 1/2 ounces blue curaçao

  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed

  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup

  • 1 egg white

  • 2 ounces tonic water

  • 4 drops orange blossom water


  1. Chill a Collins glass with ice and water and set aside.

  2. Add the gin, blue curaçao, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white into a shaker, and dry-shake (without ice) vigorously.

  3. Add ice and shake again until well-chilled.

  4. Discard ice from the prepared glass, then strain the contents of the shaker into the glass.

  5. Top with tonic water and orange blossom water.
