What is Romulan Ale?

romulanaleRomulan ale is a fictional popular blue alcoholic beverage which was illegal because of a Federation trade embargo in the late 23rd century.  It was made legal during the Dominion War, allowing Admiral William Ross to try it for the first time aboard the USS Bellerophon in 2375. (DS9 episode: “Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges”)

Recipies for Romulan ale vary slightly, and a beer version was  produced commercially and served in Quarks Bar in the Hilton, Las Vegas until it closed in 2008, but the generally accepted authentic version is along the lines of:

1 part clear rum
1 part Everclear® alcohol
1 part Blue Curacao liqueur

Chill and serve in shot glasses, or long with clear lemonade.  We shall be testing.
