  This fruit cake was in the Bacardi Rum ads in the early 60's 
  I think was the time frame.  Thanks for the help.


Hello Helen,

There's a "Bacardi Rum Cake". See below.

  Years ago (1960's), my grandmother used to make us gingerbread 
  cake and serve it with a warm vinegar sauce.  As far as I know, 
  the name of the recipe is "vinegar sauce".  I know that it 
  obviously contains vinegar, but also sugar and is heated over 
  the stove.  It appears to be similiar to a simple syrup.  I have 
  tried recreating it accorcdingly, but without sucsess. Thank you 
  for your searching abilities.  I have been looking for this for 
  many years. Even now as a proffesional baker, I am unable to locate 
  this.  Thanks again. Danette 

Hello Danette,

See below.


  Vinegar Sauce For Gingerbread 

  1 cup sugar 
  1 tbsp. flour 
  1/2 tsp. nutmeg 
  1 tbsp. butter 
  2 tbsps. vinegar 
  2 cups water 

  Combine dry ingredients. Add vinegar and enough water to make 
  smooth paste. Add remaining water and butter. Cook to boiling. 
  Stir constantly. Serve hot or cold.   

Warp Core Breach

  Dear Phaedrus, 
  If you can solve this one, your reputation as a miracle working 
  super-sleuth is secure.  I have been unable to find the recipe 
  for a delightful concoction known as a "warp core breach". Now 
  this is not the easily found warp core breach recipe that contains
  goldschlager, tequila, and Tennessee whiskey.  Oh no. This is the 
  warp core breach served at Quark's Bar at the Star Trek Experience 
  in the Las Vegas Hilton.  This masterpiece of the mixologists craft
  contains, I have been told, at least six different types of rum.  
  It is red, and is served in a fish-bowl shaped container which holds 
  dry ice at the bottom so that when the drink is served, it arrives 
  at the table with fog pouring over the edge of the bowl.  It is a 
  very enjoyable drink in oh so many ways.  If anyone can find this 
  one, it's you.  Good luck, and give one a try the next time you're 
  in Vegas. Thanks a million!   

Hello Anthony,

Well, I located two recipes, or rather one recipe and one list of ingredients. The first one below is the recipe, posted on a message board by a frequent patron of Quark's.

The second, is a list of ingredients, supposedly supplied by Quark himself. The recipe is supposed to be secret, but you know how Quark is... Enough credits can buy just about anything. However, he pulled a fast one by not giving any ingredient amounts.

Try the first one and let me know how it turns out.

Now if I can only get the local beverage store to start carrying Romulan ale...


How to Replicate a Warp Core Breach 

Combine 1/2 pint Bacardi Select, 1/2 pint Bacardi Dark, 
1/2 pint Bacardi 151, 1/2 pint Bacardi Limon, 1/2 pint Captain Morgan 
(because they don't make Bacardi Spice any more) and 1/3 pint Razzamatazz
raspberry liqueur. Mix well. 

Add 1 part mix to 3-4 parts Sobe Power, add ice and dry ice, and enjoy.
CAUTION: Drink with a straw ONLY, unless you like frozen lips.

ServingForOne = (WCB)/4
Warp Core Breach (For Two) (This recipe is supposedly direct from Quark's)

Sensors indicate a blend of
Light rum, Bacardi Select, Captain Morgan, Bacardi
Limon, Fris Vodka, Blue Curacao, Bacardi 151,
cranberry, pineapple, Ruby Red Grapefruit, guava,
orange juice, sour mix, and grenadine. We add
pure (dry) ice crystals from the planet Exo III. You'll need
more than one officer to handle this situation. 
Hi Phaedrus,
I was doing a web search to show some friends a picture of a warp core breach and 
I saw your site used my recipe... that's pretty cool. Once a year , a few days before 
the Defcon convention, we would get a group together and raid the place. The Star Trek 
Experience at the LV Hilton closed, they will be reopening in a new facility downtown 
in March of 2010.
However several of the guys who worked there started up a website and posted the actual 
drink recipes.

Quark's Bar Recipes

The main page link seems to work better than the direct link; you will find it on the 
right side of that page.

Just thought you might like to know,

I'm sorry I forgot something. You can buy the actual warp core breach fishbowl glasses 
directly from the company that made them for the experience.
